                                collections of corpuscles make up nearly 
the whole of an animalcule, & they fre-
quently give to it a lobulated & some=
times an obscurely annulose appearance. 
See Plate 1. fig: 10. also Plate 2 fig 5 - & 
Plate 3. fig. 2.
These entozoa, as long as they remain 
in the primary fasciculi, retain all 
those characters which have so far 
been described, but these characters 
gradually disappear after they have 
broken away from the cavity of the 
sarcolemma, & gained access to the 
spaces between the muscular fibres. 
In this new situation they gradually 
loose their former membranous clothing, 
studded with cilia-like fibres which 
can occasionally be seen isolated 
in part from its corpuscular contents 
sufficiently perfect to admit of demon-
stration. The reniform corpuscles 
before aggregated together in circular 
groups now gradually lose their dis-
tinctness of outline & imperfectly 
coalesce into confused ill-defined 
masses having an oily aspect, so 
that, if in this state, one of these 
vermicules be crushed under the 
microscope amorphous oily & granu=
lar matter will be seen to have 
escaped from it, similar to that 
contained in the ventral part of the 
adult animal. Here too, the 
restraint to the lateral growth of
