On the Structure and Development of the Cysticercus cellulosae, as Found in the Pig, by George Rainey

                                Besides the radiating fibres which con=
nect the handles of the hooklets to the mem-
brane just described, there are other fibres 
which occupy the spaces between their 
curved portions. These have an arched form 
with their concavity turned towards the hook=
lets into which they seem to be inserted 
See Plate 5 fig: 5(e). There are also 
two zones of circular fibres; one is placed 
over the curved portion of the hooklets & the 
other over their handles. Between these 
zones there is a circular interval which 
contains the tubercles of the hooklets. 
See Plate 1, fig:5 (b & c). These fibres 
lie close to the hooklets but in what 
manner they are attached to them m or 
whether they are inserted into them 
or not I am unable to determine. 
Although these fibres are sufficiently distinct 
in the well developed Cysticercus to leave no 
doubt of their presence, yet their morphological 
characters are not sufficiently defined 
to indicate their precise nature. However 
their connection with organs which are ob=
viously intended to perform a mechanical 
office, & which would be useless unless they 
<s>are<\s> admitted of a certain amount of motion 
furnishes a high degree of physiological 
evidence that if all these fibres are 
not muscular still at least a part of 
them is so.
