Abstract

WITH reference to Dr. Whitehouse's suggestion1 that the caudal fin of the cod is of a normal homocercal type, may I state that I have just completed a study of the development of this fin, as a result of which I can affirm that, while it certainly preserves indications of its homocercal origin, it would be misleading to apply the term homocercal to it in its present form.
