The terminal aggregations of A- and B-type horizontal cells, stained by the Golgi-Colonnier method, have been analysed. The pattern of the aggregations is regular and is shown to be in register with the cone mosaic. Both types of horizontal cell are in contact with at least 80% of the cones above their dendritic fields. Therefore, the different horizontal cell classes cannot be selective for a special kind of cone but must have at least 60% of the cone input in common. Each A-type horizontal cell makes contacts with between 120 and 170 cones, and each B-type horizontal cell with 60-90 cones. An individual A-type horizontal cell occupies an average of 20% of the lateral elements of the triads in a cone pedicle, but an individual B-type cell fills only some 13%. Each and every cone is connected with several of both types of horizontal cell. An estimation of the number of rods converging onto a single axon terminal system showed that it could be as many as 3000.
