Anatomical terminology

The tactile corpuscles of Grandry (or bulboid corpuscle) occur in the papillæ of the beak and tongue of birds. Each consists of a capsule composed of a very delicate, nucleated membrane, and contains two or more granular, somewhat flattened cells; between these cells the axis-cylinder ends in flattened disks.
