8 Wisconsin Academy of Sciences, Arts, and Letters. The wall of the vagina shows in section a greater develop- ment of the muscular layers than any other part of the repro- ductive organs. A similar enlarged muscular layer was found by Verson and Bisson (12) for Bombyx. The thin internal chit- inous layer is folded and in the epithelial layer the cells show a partial degeneration; the nuc-lei appear normal but the cyto- plasm has in part disappeared from many of the cells. The layer of circular museles is wide and followed externally by a narrower longitudinal layer. Zoological Laboratory, University of Wisconsin, February, 1905. l r k
