In the Layers palette, both the layer and vector masks appear as an additional thumbnail to the right of the layer thumbnail. For the layer mask, this thumbnail represents the grayscale channel that is created when you add the layer mask. (See "Storing masks in alpha channels" on page 280.) The vector mask thumbnail represents a path that clips out the contents of the layer.
