I . The muscular system of Metridium consists of fields of relatively short musclefibres. In extension these may exceed i mm. in length but are only about 0-5/* thick. They can shorten to about a fifth of the extended length. The fibres consist almost entirely of densely staining material. They form a connected network. At least in some cases the cells seem to be in contact rather than to form syncytial connexions.
