The epithelium lining the mouse larynx occupied the transitional zone between the keratinized stratified squamous epithelium lining the oral cavity and the ciliated columnar one continuing to the trachea. The epithelium showed gradations ranging from stratified squamous through stratified cuboidal to ciliated stratified low-columnar type. It is suggested that the epithelium is identical with the "intermediate epithelium (Nakano, 1986)" in the mouse nasopharynx.
