This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can usually download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1922 edition. Excerpt: ...pass transversely across the mastax to the dorsal ends of the rami; they are imbedded in the walls of the mastax and support them during the pumping action. Two well developed ventral salivary glands are present; the right gland is considerably larger than the left. The oesophagus is unusually long and slender. The gastric glands are small and rounded. The stomach and intestine are not distinctly separated. The ovary is large and ovate in outline. A normal bladder is present. The foot glands are long and slightly club-shaped.
