1. The Golgi bodies of the oocyte of Lycosa birmanica do not contain triglyceride.

2. They contain phospholipine, lipo-protein, and protein.

3. They are granular and all of approximately equal size. Any variation in their size or shape is due to the irregular deposition of phospholipine on them.

4. Fine bodies resembling Golgi bodies in appearance and reacting like them with osmium tetroxide and silver nitrate consist of phospholipine.

5. The Golgi bodies in the material studied appear not to multiply by division, but to arise in the ground cytoplasm independently of one another. They may be regarded as nutritive bodies.
