Description: 

SEM showing the lateral line analogue in cuttlefish. The linear grooves running from upper right to lower left on the head of this hatchling cuttlefish are analagous to the lateral lines of fishes, being sensitive to vibrations transmitted in water. The front edge of the mantle is in the upper right corner and the arms are projecting down to the left.
