After the recent excellent description of the cranial nerves in Amphiuma by Kingsley it may seem hardly worthwhile to present any further account. But having the good fortune to possess some material in which the individual nerve trunks can be traced with great distinctness through the various plexuses the writer ventures to present the following brief account of the interrelationships of the vagus and anterior spinal nerves. The points wherein this paper is at variance with that of Kingsley are probably in most respects of not great importance, and possibly due to differences in the state of development of the specimens examined. This account is based on the structures studied in a specimen of 130 mm. in length.
