Fig. 46. Reconstruction of Embryo No. VI


Enlarged 8 times. 1-12, dorsal ganglia; S C, suprarenal capsule ; K, kidney ; W, Wolfian body ; S, stomach; C, caecum; L, liver.

The dotted area on the ventral side of the liver indicates the extent of the ventral rnesentery.

Fig. 46 (embryo VI) shows that all the tissues are becoming more definitely outlined, and the whole structure is firmer than in embryo X. The organs of the abdomen are more firmly clustered together, and the intestine has become more convoluted. The lung is much larger, and the pleural cavity extends to the ventral wall of the embryo, obscuring wholly the outline of the heart. In general it confirms everything given in Fig. 45.
