Development of the olfactory system in anemonefish embryos of the species Amphiprion melanopus was examined from day six post-fertilization, until hatching (day nine). An olfactory placode with receptor cells lining the epithelium and nerve axons from the placode into the olfactory bulb, was observed on newly hatched embryos. In addition, two different secondary bilateral receptor systems were found. These findings may firstly support the anemonefish host imprinting hypothesis, and secondly indicate that the ontogenetic timing of this imprinting mechanism occurs towards the end of the embryonic development.
