Abstract
    A microcanalicular network is demonstrated within the ossicle stroma and the dermal tissue of two asteroid species. Microcanaliculi are presumed to be mesodermal structures. They consist of convoluted tubular ducts lined by epithelial cells associated with scattered basiepithelial nervous processes. Such a microcanalicular system has not been reported previously from any echinoderm species. Its discovery in asteroids entails some conceptual changes, especially considering the physiology of the body wall.
