Later in the development (stage 39, 55 h) a large symmetrieal structure (velar plate, ventral velum or primitive tongue) develops on the pharyngeal floor (Figs. 43b,c, 44e, 46-48). This structure,less evident in other anurans, is characterized by parallel ridges that under electron mieroscopy (Fig. 48) show stubby mierovilli. At the posterior end of this structure the pharynx constriets to form the oesophagus. The lungs, too, derive from the digestive tube. In the centre of the pharyngeal floor at the posterior end of the velar plate, a ventral groove forms and deepens, becoming a tube, and bifurcates to form the bronchi and lungs.
