The authors have reexamined the liver of Myxine with the light and electron microscopes. The observations demonstrate that the liver in this animal is really a tubular gland, in accordance with the conclusions of older anatomists, but in contrast to more recent statements. The existence of a tubular pattern in the liver of the lowest living vertebrate is important for the elaboration of a valid general model of liver structure, which necessarily has to be based on comparative anatomy.
