SBA and NADPH-d histochemistries allow identification of functionally distinct components of the amphibian primary olfactory system. In Pipa, a secondarily aquatic frog, combination of both methodologies, using alternate sets of histological sections, reveals that, apart from Jacobson's organ, this species has a 'water-nose' and an 'air-nose'. The epithelia occupy separate chambers of the olfactory organ and give rise to olfactory nerve fiber bundles that are identified by the dual staining procedure.
