Summary of the development of the head-kidney and glomerulus.
Each of these sacs with its contained blood vessels is called a glomerulus.
This point is, however, difficult to make sure of owing to the facility with which the glomerulus breaks away.
We have reason to think that the corpuscles and vascular channels in the glomerulus are developed in situ.
On the inner wall of this diverticulum a projection is formed which becomes a glomerulus.
The pronephric cavity with its glomerulus is identical in structure with a malpighian body.
glomerulus glo·mer·u·lus (glō-měr'yə-ləs)

A small cluster or intertwined mass.
A tuft of capillaries situated within a Bowman's capsule at the end of a renal tubule in the vertebrate kidney that filters waste products from the blood and thus initiates urine formation.
