DESCRIPTION

One of 3 bilateral pairs of male-specific neurons (SPCL/R, SPDL/R, SPVL/R) that innervate the left and right copulatory spicules of the male. SPVL/R are cilated neurons that open to the outside at the spicule tip (Sulston et al., 1980).

See Glial Table for view of spicule organization.

Function: During mating, SPVL/R inhibit sperm transfer (Liu and Sternberg, 1995).

Receptor expression: Unknown
