Gr. L. 2.5 mm. Remains of primitive streak. Cloacal membrane. 23 pairs of primitive segments. Chorda separated from entoderm, Anterior neuropore closed. but its position still recognizable. Medullary canal stili wide open for a stretch caudally. Roof of 4th vent, beginning to thin out. Neuromeres. Trigeminus and acustico-facialis ganglia distinct. Optic vesicles. Mesoderm between ectoderm and optic vesicle, Auditory vesicle almost closed (open through 4 or 5 sections of 5μ). Ductus endolymphaticus not yet visible. Anlage doubtful. Pharyngeal membrane just torn, still abundant remains of it. Intestine still communicates widely with the yolk sack. Liver a thick-walled sack from which the trabeculse are beginning to bud. The 3 anterior branchial pouches reacts the ectoderm; the 4th, though formed, does not. Thyreoidea mediana formed. Pulmotracheal groove. The paired condition of the pulmonary anlage already indicated. Rudimentary "pronephric anlage" Heart S-shaped. Allantoic duct The embryo was obtained by operation.

Abundant mitoses in the embryo. Fixation: ? Stain: Borax carmine. Sections: 5 μ. The embryo was modelled by Dr. Peter Thompson (1907) Also see Meyer (1904)
