Definition of Term

pharyngeal teeth counts
(English) In some groups such as minnows and suckers the fifth gill arches are strengthened and bear inwardly directed teeth, in 1 - 3 rows. Conventionally counts are given for both sides, beginning with the shorter row on the left side, e.g., 2,4-4,2. In order to count pharyngeal teeth it is necessary to carefully dissect the arches from the gill cavity and clean the excess flesh from them. (See also: pharyngeal teeth)
dénombrement des dents pharyngiennes
(French) Chez certains poissons, le 5ème arc branchial est renforcé et porte des dents dirigées vers l'intérieur, en 1 à 3 rangées. Les comptages sont donnés pour les deux côtés, en commençant par la rangée la plus courte du côté gauche, par exemple, 2,4-4,2. (See also: pharyngeal teeth)
