Seite 441 - ... that it may possibly have a function similar to that of the oil glands in birds. It differs in structure in different genera. In Podura, Lipura and Anurida it is a simple cleft tubercle. In Tomocerus it is enlarged, forming a tube, bilobed at the tip.

At the anterior end of each joint, around the rim of the cup, there is a row of rather short stiff spines. There are also a variable number of spines scattered over the surfaces of the several joints.

Seite 310 - Lubbock1 advances essentially the same idea as Balfour's in his recent work on the subject, illustrated with some lucid diagrams. " In the simple forms," he says, " the whole surface is more or less sensitive. Suppose, however, some solid and opaque particles of pigment deposited in certain cells of the skin. Their opacity would arrest and absorb the light, thus increasing its effect, while their solidity would enhance the effect of external stimulus. A further step might be a depression in the skin...
