1. Each testis is followed by two vasa deferentia, which join to form a common vas deferens.
2. The ejaculatory duct opens into the phallus.
3. The ædeagus is a curved organ, bifurcated at the distal end.
4. In the external genitalia of male, the eighth abdominal sternite is reduced; the ninth is represented by spiculum gastrale, whereas the tenth is absent. In the female, the eighth is reduced, the ninth surrounds the genit a chamber, and the tenth is absent.
5. There are two ovaries, the egg tube is acrotropic.
6. The oviducts unite to form the uterus.
7. The spermatheca and the accessory gland join the bursa copulatrix which in turn opens into the genital chamber.

1. The right anterior wall of the atrium dextrum is smooth and non-muscular and represents the remnant of the sinus wall which has been incorporated in the atrium.
2. The atrium dextrum is divided into two parts by a horizontal partition. The muscular strands of the atrium dextrum do not form a
3. S-A node, A-V node and A-V bundle are absent.
4. The atrial septum and the walls of the two atria have Purkinje fibres.
5. In the left ventricle, a muscular papilla originating from the posterolateral wall of the ventricle runs parallel to the ventricular septum. This muscular papilla is connected anteriorly with a posterior extension of the left atrial wall and the atrial septum.
6. A ‘moderator band’ in the left ventricle has been described.
7. Vestige of ductus arteriosus persists.
8. A coronary artery has been noted springing from the aorta at its origin near the atrioventricular junction.
