Accord ingly, the nerve-supply FIG.

In front, near the anterior attachment of the gill-plume, is the osphradium (olfactory organ) dis h covered by J.

It is important, because such a concrescence is by no means universal, and does not occur, for example, in Mytilus or in Arca; further, because when its occurrence is once appreciated, the reduction of the gill-plates of Anodonta to the plume-type of the simplest ctenidium presents no difficulty; and, lastly, it has importance in reference to its physiological significance.
