early 17 ISN, focal plane 2

Note the terminal arbor in the left-hand segment. Here we can see the next layer of muscles below the ones seen in the previous focal plane. Note the positions of FB at the crossing of muscles 3 and 11, and of SB at the proximal edge of muscle 10. Note also the branches at muscles 19 and 4. The m cell provides a reference point to the position of the ventral branches such as the SNb, since the m cell is visible in all of the images of the ventral region.
