9 mm (fig. 1, plate 1). The earliest stage that I have studied is shown in an embryo 9 mm long. In this specimen the genital tubercle is a very low conical eminence between the umbilical cord and the base of the tail. Its apex is separated from the rest of the tubercle by a pair of converging depressions which unite in the midventral line to form a longitudinal groove extending to the caudal border, giving to the entire groove a Y-shape. Caudal to the arms of the Y and lateral to its stem is a pair of broad, swollen areas. This condition is slightly different from the stage described by Keibel (1896) of the beginning development of the genitalia in a 3-mm. embryo. In his specimen he described the cloacal tubercle as consisting of a pair of eminences separated by the cloacal membrane. The difference between the stage described by Keibel and my first stage may be accounted for entirely by the difference in the size of the two specimens.
