Displaced ganglion cells have been examined in wholemounted and sectioned retinae following bilateral injection of horseradish peroxidase into optic tracts of the wallaby, Setonix brachyurus, "quokka". Such cells, which lie in the vitread part of the inner nuclear layer, are located mainly in superior retina as a streak-like band dorsal to the area centralis and visual streak of orthotopic ganglion cells. Only between 1 and 2% of the total ganglion cell population were displaced, but an analysis of cell morphology and soma diameter suggested that displaced ganglion cells represented several cell types.
