The origin of jets of mucus produced in raptorial feeding by species of Euchirella has previously been related to two distinct types of glandular pores in the oral cavity, viz., to urn-shaped and to tubular pores, respectively. The dimensions of both types of integumental organs present no theoretical clues, however, as to which type would be better suited to extrude masses of mucous secretion with hydrodynamic properties such as required to travel some definite distance through the water on their own.
