Here as elsewhere I use the word “cell” merely as a substitute for the more cumbrous expression “nucleated mass of protoplasm” without in the least implying that it is separate from its neighbours. As a matter of fact the “cells” of the mesenchyme are merely the enlarged and nucleated nodes of an irregular continuous protoplasmic spongework such as Sedgwick describes in Selachians.

Much of the minute detail has unfortunately disappeared in the mechanical printing of these figures. I shall be glad therefore to show any specialists who are interested sun prints from the same negatives, in which the full detail is brought out.
