I recently obtained two specimens of the genus Clinus,
which was known to be viviparous long before the time of
the great French naturalist, Cuvier. It is stated by Dr.
Gunther that Bloch verified this fact in the diagnosis of
Clinus superciliosus. One of the two species which I have
referred to was examined by me, and was found to be full of
young fish, most of them having just burst the egg. Under
the microscope the pulsations of the heart were distinctly
visible, and all the parts seemed to be well developed,
although from the specimen exhibited it will be seen that
each individual is extremely minute.
