Freshwater hydra dissection

Pierre Lyonet

Zoological study showing a dissected specimen of freshwater hydra illustrating the prey arms. Plate 9 from Memoires pour server a l'histoire d'un genre de polypes d'eau Abraham Trembley (Leiden, 1744). The plate is inscribed: "P. Lyonet delin. et sculp. 1743." The Swiss natural historian Abraham Trembley (1710-1784) was elected a Fellow of the Royal Society in 1743. His book, from which this plate is taken, gives an account of experiments with freshwater hydra, or polyps. The Dutch entomologist Pierre Lyonet (1706-1789) was elected a Fellow of the Royal Society in 1748.

Original: copperplate engraving. 1743
