Two neuromast are located in the portion of the can in the dentary bone. The third neuromast is located in the anguloarticular bone. The rostral end of the canal has a terminal pore adjacent to the mandibular symphysis. There are three more pores, two, at the posterior of the dentary and the anterior of the anguloarticular share a common epithelial pore.
