The mouth, just opened, is visible between the 01factory pit and the protruding cement gland. The external gills are not so evident as in Fig. 34 a-c. Note the proctodeum, perpendicular to the tail, which, together with the absence of the postanal gut, is an useful element by which to stage a larva of this age. The tail has a dorsal and a ventral fin.

The heart develops in an anterior position just underneath the pharynx; only later does it move to the chest. While the embryo is undergoing neurulation, the prospective heart mesoderm detaches from the endoderm, forming a cavity harbouring some mesenchymal cells that will form the endocardium (Fig. 22c). The splanchnic mesoderm surrounds the mesenchymal cells and fuses medially to form the myocardium and epicardium. The somatic mesoderm forms the pericardium. In a 72-h-old tadpole the he art tube is twisted and weIl differentiated (Fig.
