Earthworm eggs and their development

Plate 19 from the paper "On the double organs of generation of the lamprey, the conger eel, the common eel, the barnacle, and the earthworm, which impregnate themselves; though the last from copulating, appear mutually to impregnate one another", by Everard Home, Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society, vol.113 (1823), pp.140-151. Details of the sexual organs, eggs and embryos of the earthworm. Figures 1-4 show the testicle, ovaries and egg sacks containing eggs and embyros at different stages. Figures 5-9 show immature worms with a dissected view of the tail portion of an adult worm. Signed in ink lower left "Franz Bauer del." Royal Society stamp verso.

Original: watercolour on board. 1823
