Earliest Signs of Fingers

12 Days, 7–9 mm
  • Karl Theiler

Abstract

The most conspicuous changes take place in the extremities. The “handplate” is no longer roundish. Even in younger members of this group there is a slightly angular contour (Fig. 182). The developing angles correspond to the finger rays [184]. The posterior footplate is now demarcated from the lower part of the leg. The somites are clearly visible from the tail to the mid-trunk region. The spinal ganglia may be seen through the skin in transparent specimens.
