Abstract
    The morphology of the cells during oogenesis in Amiantis umbonella (Mollusca: Bivalvia) was investigated from collections made between November 1997 and January 1999. Each stage is described and prominent features noted. A unique arrangement of auxiliary cells around the oocyte is described.
