The recognition, within recent years, of the parts played by certain structures arising from the walls of the human pharynx, in health and disease, renders these bodies of great interest, and hence all facts which throw light upon their morphology are of value. It was from such considerations that the writer under took the study detailed in this paper, for, while a knowledge of their development in amphibia may have no immediate practical value, the close relations of that group to the ancestry of the mammals gives every addition to our knowledge an interest which would not be expected with such groups as the teleosts or the birds.
