By a large majority, this cell is encountered as an On-center variety. Only Kolb et al '92 reports ever seeing a putative off-center variety.

Kouyama & Marshak describe this cell as characteristically providing the central element of the dendritic triad at the blue cone pedicles. They also describe unknown dendritic elements which form "triad-associated flat contacts". Since, as they acknowledge, these are likely to be other bipolar types, I refer to this type as the invaginating blue bipolar.
