Abstract Olfactory cilia in two species of skinks have their basal bodies in an elevated area of cytoplasm. The cell membrane over this area and over the base of the cilium for a distance of about 0.25 μ is ornamented by 9 rows of short bristles or setulae, arranged to coincide with the 9 peripheral tubular elements of the basal body and cilium. Individual setulae are about 300 Å in length and each row is about 5-6 setulae in width over the basal body. The number and distance between rows is reduced at the base of the cilium. Basal bodies have a pattern of 9 triple fibers and end in a dense footplate. The basal 0.25 μ of the cilium has a fiber pattern of 9 + 0, and the central pair of filaments begin at the level of smooth ciliary membrane. The main part of the ciliary length has a typical 9 + 2 pattern of filaments.
