Resumo: The two olfactory epithelia of the family Soleidae are exposed to differentwater sources; the upper (right) epitheliumsamples thewater column whereas the lower (left) samples interstitial water. Given that one of the major prey species of the Senegalese sole (Solea senegalensis) is the ragworm Hediste diversicolor which lives in the substrate, we hypothesized that the lower epitheliummay have evolved sensitivity to odorants released by the ragworm whereas the upper epithelium may be more involved in chemical communication and therefore is more sensitive to odorants released by conspecifics.
