In Streptocephalus dichotomus, the oviductal cells show the existence of a secretory cycle corresponding to each ovulation cycle. This secretory activity coincides with the passage of eggs from the lateral pouch of the oviduct into the ovisac. During ovulation the glandular cells of the oviduct become flattened and produce large numbers of secretory granules in the form of globules. Various phases of the secretory cycle are also described. The possible function and the type of secretion have been discussed with available information on other anostracans.
