THE RELATION OF CORONARY AND HEPATICARTERIES IN THE COMMON GANOIDS C. H. DANFORTH From (he Department of Anntomy, Washington University Medical School FOUR FIGURES The regular occurrence of anterior and posterior coronaryarteries in several of the Rajidae was definitely recognized byHyrtl (58) and T. J. Parker (84).

This fact has led to the prevailing idea that the posteriorcoronary artery is peculiar to the Batoidei. Such a vessel, how-ever, has been found in the ganoid, Polyodon, by Allen (07) andDanforth (12).
