Hi Алексей,


The old stuff is also still very useful ... e.g.


Ludwig, H. 1892: Über die Rädchen der Synaptiden. Zeitschrift für wissenschaftliche Zoologie 54 (1/2): 350-364, pl. XVI.


Woodland, W. (1907): Studies in Spicule Formation VII.: The Scleroblastic Development of the Plate- and Anchor Spicules of Synapta, and of the Wheel Spicules of the Auricularia Larva. The Quarterly Journal of Microscopic Science 51 (3): 483-509, pl. 29-30.


Best wishes,



PS: I will send you the copies of these both in a separate Email...

Dear Colleagues,

I would be very grateful for bibliographic references about holothurian spicules formation and development.

Thanks in advance,
