Serial transverse and horizontal sections of the tail of the 26-day larval lamprey, Lampetra japonica, were observed by light and electron microscopy. The axial structures in the tail of the larval lamprey seem to differentiate from the prospective materials derived individually from the tail bud. The latter consists of two closely adjoined cell populations (C1 and C2). C1 is a small cell cluster located posterior to the other group (C2) and consists of loosely arranged polymorphous cells.
