Abstract: Macrobrachium carcinus is a Brazilian native prawn with recognized potential for use in aquaculture activities. The aim of this study was to describe and illustrate in detail the morphology of the M. carcinus foregut. The foregut comprises the mouth, esophagus and stomach. It is lined by a simple cylindrical epithelium overlain by chitinous cuticle. The cardiac chamber is well supplied with muscles and lined with chitin thickened in places to form a complex, articulating set of ossicles. The ossicles and setae… Show more

“…Our results for the structure of the penaeid shrimp ASC, PSC and GS are similar to those previously reported for P. japonicus (Lin, 1996) and for other crustacean species, including the spider crab, Notomithrax ursus (Woods, 1995), the Brazilian native prawn, M. carcinus (Lima et al, 2016) and three Antarctic shrimp species (N. lanceopes, N. antarcticus and C. antarcticus) (Storch et al, 2001). Most of these reports focused mainly on the relationship between the structure and dietary habits of each species.…”

“…Structural and morphological investigation of the GS has also been reported for many decapod species, e.g. Penaeus (Marsupenaeus) japonicus (Lin, 1996), Pleoticus muelleri (Díaz et al, 2008), Nematocarcinus lanceopes, Notocrangon antarcticus and Chorismus antarcticus (Muhammad et al, 2012), P. monodon and Metapenaeus ensis (Lin, 2000) and M. carcinus (Lima, et al, 2016). All these studies reported the same pattern of GS organization as an inverted-V, dome-like structure covered with numerous stacks of overlapping fine setae and located at the ventro-medial side of the PSC.…”
