Right panel: Placement of the ganglia in relation to the tail muscles.
Bottom panel: TEM showing cross sections of lumbar ganglia (LG), cloacal ganglia (CG) and preanal ganglion (PAG). Inset indicates section level along the tail of the male (Image source: N2Y [MRC] N2YLP41-print 119)(for muscle nomenclature refer to MaleMusTABLE 1)
