Fig. 1. Right Side Reconstruction

Figs. 1 and 2 are reconstructions of the right and left sides respectively, showing the anterior and posterior cardinals, the duct of Cuvier and the vessels already mentioned. These structures extend over five segments, the last occipital and the first four cervical. Just dorsal to the most proximal portion of the superior cardinal and emptying in part into this vesel and in part into the posterior cardinal as it bends forward to unite with the superior cardinal are found a number of small vessels, rather more numerous on the left side. These lie for the most part in a plane placed almost sagitally - the more dorsal vessels being slightly nearer the median line - lateral and somewhat ventral to the dorsal aortse and ventral or even internal, to the ventral border of the myotomes. Most of these vessels have a connection with one of the cardinal veins, but others have apparently no such connections.
