In the Anura the eggs are fertilized as they leave the oviduct.
In the female the right egg-gland and egg-duct or oviduct are wanting.
In women the corresponding operation—a section of the oviduct—is termed salpingectomy.
And the structure of the egg carries us back to the oviduct of the parent-fowl.
The egg-capsule which is formed for them in their passage down the oviduct is perforated in Sepia by a micropylar aperture.
After this process is completed the egg may be retained in the oviduct for some time.
I have seen the egg leave the oviduct; it is then what it will be later, but lighter in colour.
This is the oviduct, and its dimensions are the same as those of the rostrum.
By compressing it slightly on the stage of the microscope, we easily discover the ovary, the matrix, and oviduct full of eggs.
The segmentation is meroblastic, and the germinal disc adjoins the opening of the oviduct.
