    • Abstract


      The tegumental glands inLigia exotica are located around the oesophagus and also in the tissues of maxillae and maxillipeds. Each gland consists of a number of acini and each acinus is made of a rosette of 8–11 large conical cells. Histochemical observations of these glands reveal the presence of strongly sulphated and carboxylated acid mucopolysaccharides and neutral mucopolysaccharides.
