Melanin granules are numerous concentrated superficial and lateral of the nuclei. White scars, so prominent on dolphins such as the Risso’s dolphin, are usually lacking the pigment. The main columnar cells of the stratum germinativum are attached in the dermis by numerous hemidesmosomes on the basal membrane and to each other by desmosomes. The cytoplasm is typical of mammalian germinatival cells containing numerous perinuclear mitochondria, rough endoplasmic reticulum, free ribosomes, Golgi apparatus, and a woven pattern of tonofibrils.
