We made a modification to a cartoon drawing of the RID neurite morphology in Figure 1A. The original sketch may be interpreted as the ventral-dorsal branch of the RID neurite loops around the pharynx. The new version prevents any incorrect interpretation of the trajectory of this neurite. It does not run in a circle around the pharynx, as might be implied by the cartoon, but rather loops back around the left side of the animal en route to the dorsal nerve cord. We have corrected the Figure to avoid any potential confusion. The original article did not make any statement on the trajectory. We thank our colleagues who brought our attention to this potential misinterpretation of the original sketch.

The corrected Figure 1 is shown here:

The originally published Figure 1 is also shown for reference:

The article has been corrected accordingly.
