Papillary tumors of the skin of the land invertebrate Lehmannia poireri (a gastropod) could not be induced by using a potent vertebrate carcinogen. With the same agent 7,12-dimethylbenz (a) anthracene papillary tumors can readily be induced in mice. The resistance of this invertebrate to a known vertebrate carcinogen is discussed and the ramifications are conjectured.
