With present study, we confirm that the ventral structures on anterior and middle chaetigers of two species of Spio are special kind of intraepidermal multicellular glands. The general anatomy and coherence morphology of these ventral epidermal glands (VEGs) were 3D-reconstructed based on semithin section series. Specific anatomical characters were explored using electron microscopy, such as scanning electron microscopy for characterization of gland pores and transmission electron microscopy… Expand
