Both of these strata eventually become the epiblast, of which they form the epidermic and nervous layers.
The division of the epiblast into a nervous and epidermic stratum.
The epidermic layer gives rise to the corneal lenses, the crystalline cones, and the pigment around the latter.
The reason is the failure of the pepsin to act on epidermic substances.
It is covered with epidermic cells which multiply rapidly, thus accounting for the rapid growth of the hair.
From the epiblast are formed all such tegumentary organs or parts of organs as are epidermic in nature.
Its filaments are cylindrical, like those of silk; but the surface is covered with thin scales or epidermic cells.
We have still to describe, in connection with the horse, some epidermic tissues, which are known as chestnuts.
The hair is an epidermic formation, consisting of epidermic cells more or less flattened and altered in shape by mutual pressure.
Ontogeny teaches unmistakably that its elementary organs, the epidermic cells, develop entirely from the ectoderm.

The nonvascular outer protective layer of the skin, covering the dermis.
