From the intestine arise several greenish yellow threads, the malpighian tubules.
The malpighian bodies were somewhat enlarged, but of normal structure.
The accessory malpighian bodies, or at any rate one of them, appear to have curious relations to the segmental tubes.
Do not ask him to take a malpighian layer off her cell nest just to please me.
The cells of the malpighian layer within the cone now become differentiated into three layers.
Especial accumulations of these cells take place at a later period to form the so-called malpighian corpuscles of the spleen.
These outgrowths, with the exception of the first two or three, become detached from the malpighian bodies.
At their blind extremity (that originally connected with the peritoneal epithelium) a malpighian body is formed.
Renal caecal tubes (malpighian tubes) open into the proctodaeum.
The extremity near the peritoneal epithelium forms a malpighian body, and the other end unites with the segmental duct.
