Three-dimensional reconstruction of neurocranium and swim bladder extensions of E. maculatus. Reconstructions are based on microCT imaging (A-C) and histological serial sections (D-F) shown in posterior (A, D), dorsal (B, E), and right lateral (C, F) views. c, chorda (white); cm, connective material (light blue); nc, neurocranium (red, transparent red, or red (bone) and dark blue (cartilage); sb pad, swim bladder pad (blue); sb ext, swim bladder extension (green).
