Macronuclear division is completed, cytoplasmic cleavage is taking place, and the denticulate rings of each of the daughter trichodinids are about to unite. The individual plates of the new rings are clearly distinguishable Fig 99 — Division product of T. parabranchicola (towards the lower limit of the size range) The denticles derived from the parent are only loosely inserted into one another but in this instance the plates of the new denticulate ring are not yet differentiated. Aboral view Fig 100 — Adoral view T. parabranchicola A later stage than that represented in Fig. 99 All but the cones of the denticles derived from the parent have here been absorbed, and these are no longer interconnected. The hooks of the new denticles have formed the cones are strongly developed and the characteristic number of units in the striated band is in process of being restored by the development of new st [ unclear: ] ae between those derived from the parent Fig 101 — Aboral new o [ unclear: ] a detached skeletal complex of T. multidentis Absorption of the parent denticles is commencing while the cones of the cones of the new ring are becoming apparent.
