Longitudinal section through the tip of its smaller part. The structure of the tubular appendix is similar to this figure. x 800. Fig. 11. Longitudinal section of the receptaculum seminis, larger part. x 800. Fig. 12. Section of wall of seminal receptacle where the two parts pass into each other. Epithelial cells of the smaller part are much longer than those of the larger part. x 250. Fig. 13. Longitudinal section of bursa copulatrix. a, inner surface. x 800. Fig. 14. Section of wall of cement gland near distal end. Just under the chitinous layer, ch., are two small nuclear-like bodies which, with the chitinous 'layer, are represented in the fol- lowing figure. x 600. Fig. 15. Surface view of chitinous layer showing markings as if of a, division into cells. The nuclear-like bodies and markings may belong to some layer just under "the chitin, only the nuclei of which are seen in the section. x 800. Fig. 16. Wall of cement gland near its proximal end. The epithelial cells show near their free ends peculiar bodies somewhat resembling those seen in the' tip of the receptaculum sem- inis, Fig. 10. x 600. Fig. 17. Single epithelial cell from proximal end of cement gland just before its enlargement. Between the margin of the nu- cleus and the free end of the cell is seen the peculiar body from which a duct leads out through teh layer of chitin. x 800. Fig. 18. Longitudinal section through last part, reservoir, of cement gland. A small portion of the secretion which fills this reservoir is shown. X 800. Fig. 19. Longitudinal section through wall of the vagina. x 250. F EFINNW--- - - - - W Z- . i
