The brain of the garpike presents several peculiarities which deviate considerably from the general structure of the typical fish brain, concerning which there is a marked difference of opinion amongst the various investigators or about which very little is known. The present paper presents a preliminary report about some of the interesting features of the brain of Lepidosteus. In the following discussion special attention will be given to the meninges and their relationship to the brain and to the outpushings of the diencephalon and their relationship to each other.
