Comparative Aspects of the Morphogenesis and Morphology of the Wing Membranes of Bats (—hiroptera) and Flying Lemurs (Dermoptera)

Kovalyova, I. Ő.



The heterogeneity of formation of diff erent areas in the wing membrane of —hiroptera and Dermoptera was established. The web between metacarpals and digits (chiropatagium) was formed by the mesenchyme which initially formed the forelimb rudiment. The plagiopatagium and propatagium were formed by proliferation of the trunk mesenchymal cells.
