is the Thermo sensory neuron also an amphid neuron?

In this statement: "however, only the amphid neurons (ASH 5) are required for chemotaxis." Does this mean that only ASH 5 is an amphid neuron? What does the 5 mean? Please clarify in the text.

I cut this sentence "In response to stimuli, C. elegan neurons propagate an action potential and release biogenic amines such as dopamine, tyramine, and octopamine as neurotransmitter. " because I wasn't sure if it applied only to amphid neurons or was a general statement about C.elegans neurons.
