While preparing sections of an anther of Lilium Formosum for histological study it was noted that only two of the locules were at all normal. The remaining two, on the other side of the filament, contained no pollen-mother cells and were somewhat shriveled. Since this condition had not been encountered in any of the numerous anthers studied and seemed worthy of mention, the following study was made.
