MUSEUM OF COMPAllATIVE ZOOLOGY. 105 that in Pedicelliua, in which the metamorphosis of the larva has beeu best studied, the stolon arises from the base of the stalk — that is, at tlie polo where mouth aud auus were first formed — at the pole of iuvaginatiou. I have shown that this is true for Phylactokcmata, and probably for Gjmnoleemata. If the interpretation which I have put on Gymnolsematous ontogeny becomes confirmed, the larvae and the budding areas will be homologous throughout all Bryozoa. The following diagrams will explain my idea of the relation of the different ontogenetic stages in the two groups. Endoprocta. Ectoprocta.. The left hand vertical series represents stages in the development of Eudoprocta ; the riglit hand one, stages of Ectoprocta. The blastopore (*) is throughout turned upwards in the figures. Stage I. is in both cases a young gastrula. Stage 11. is that of the free-swimming larva of Endo- procta. This stage is lost in the ontogeny of Ectoprocta, in which, by abbreviation of lorval life, the free-swimming stage corresponds to the condition of the fixed Endoproct after it has undergone its rotation. This stage, or one slightly later, is shown in III. Both larva? are fixed, the Endoproct by the blastoporic, the Ectoproct by the opposite pole. The position of the stolon, or of the first polypide of the colony produced by non-sexual methods, is represented at gm., near the blastoporic pole..
