The hypodermis of the larva passes directly into that of the imago.
The hypodermis of this region is of two distinct types of cells.
By histolysis certain parts of the hypodermis are destroyed, while other portions of it develop into the new structures.
The term 'hypodermis' frequently applied to this layer is misleading.
The cells of the hypodermis multiply greatly, and lie one above the other in numerous layers.
The hypodermis is the immediate agent in effecting the external changes.
Note on a new organ, and on the structure of the hypodermis, in Periplaneta orientalis.
The hypodermis is composed of parts of two different kinds, viz.
The cuticle contrasts strongly in its nature with the hypodermis it protects.
hypodermis hy·po·der·mis (hī'pə-dûr'mĭs) or hy·po·derm (hī'pə-dûrm')
An epidermal layer of cells that secretes an overlying chitinous cuticle, as in arthropods.
