Fig. 3. A Composite Picture Showing the Formation of the Umbilicus in an Embryo 2.5 mm Long

This drawing was made after a careful study of several embryos of this length described in the literature.

Each author was interested in some particular region, but not in the embryo as a whole. The yolk sac has now become greatly narrowed at its entrance into the body. The narrowed portion is now referred to as the vitelline or omphalomesenteric duct. In its wall are seen the right omphalomesenteric vessels. The digestive tract already shows well defined differentiation.

The allantois now opens into the cloaca. The amnion almost completely encircles the embryo, and in so doing has combined the vitelline duct with the body-stalk, containing the chorionic vessels and the allantois, into a common cord. As the development advances this cord will become more compact, thinner, and longer. The exocoelom has been drawn into the embryo and will later unite with the coelom of the pleuroperitoneal cavity.
