Thus "a species undergoing paedomorphosis
will find itself in possession of a number of genes whose functions were to control characters which no longer appear, since the old adult characters will be lost in neoteny.
Tall non-storied rays composed chiefly or entirely of upright cells are indicative of paedomorphosis
in wood of the genus.

change in time or rate of events during development) and reveal whether the differences are the result of paedomorphosis
or peramorphosis (Klingenberg, 1998).
Adaptive significance of facultative paedomorphosis
in Tritums alpestris (Amphibia, Caudata): resource partitioning in an alpine lake.
These include heterochronic mutations that alter structures by changing growth rates, homeotic mutations that change the identities of whole body parts, and paedomorphosis
, which converts juvenile stages directly to adult ones.
Heterochrony in Tingidae (Insecta: Heteroptera): paedomorphosis
refers to among-individual variation in metamorphosis: some individuals experience the typical metamorphosis as a juvenile whereas others become sexual mature and forego metamorphosis (i.
resulting from general slowing down of developmental rates in shape.
This suggest that paedomorphosis
may have played an important role in calyptocephalellid diversification and speciation.
