1. A detailed description is given of the histology of the imaginal disks of legs, wings, halteres, and eye-antennae during their development. In the third instar several cell types can be distinguished in all disks. 2. In the third instar a large number of pycnotic nuclei are found in all disks. 3. The imaginal disks of the third leg, the wing, and the haltere are connected both with each other and with the skeletal muscles by a special muscle system. There is also a similar connection between the peripodial membrane of the eye-antennal disk and the pharyngeal apparatus. 4. In the late third instar a specific localization of glycogen is found in all disks. This means that a chemo-differentiation takes place before the corresponding morpho-differentiation. The localization during the successive developmental stages is described. 5. On the basis of its localization, nothing can be said with certainty about the function of glycogen. Several possible explanations are discussed.
