In the last Nauplius stage, or meta-Nauplius (fig. 26) the joints have disappeared; it is only about two-thirds as long as the body, and it carries only the two long hairs at the tip. In the first Protozoea stage (fig. 27, A) it is made up of a long cylindrical basal joint with a few short hairs, and a much shorter terminal joint, which is pointed, and carries the two long hairs as before. The structure of the appendage does not change until the end of the Zo.ea series, and it is shown at A in figs. 34, 42, 43, and 44. At the first Schizopod stage (fig. 50, A) the basal portion is made up of one very long cylindrical joint, with a hook near its swollen base, and a much shorter distal joint. Three long, two-jointed, plumose hairs spring from the inner edge of the second joint, and three more from the inner edge of the distal third of the basal joint. The terminal portion has lost the two long hairs which it had at earlier stages. In the last Schizopod stage (fig. 54, A, and fig. 56) the distal third of the basal joint has separated off as a distinct joint (fig. 56, a) upon which the three hairs are situated. The ear has made its appearance, behind the hook, on the swollen base of the first joint. The terminal joint (4) carries three sensory hairs, which arise upon its outer surface about half way between its tip and base. In the Mastigopus stage (fig. 60) the terminal joint has lengthened to form a twojointed flagellum, and the appendage is more than twice as long as the eye. In the young specimens which have attained to the adult form (fig. 61, A) the appendage is about as long as the carapace and neck, and in the adult (fig. 66, A) the flagellum (2) is about as long as the basal...
