Diminutive of moles, "a mass." A minute portion of any body. Also, the cicatricula, macula, galintura, gelatinous molecule, tread of the cock, or embryo part of the impregnated ovum, observable by the microscope before the ovum has left he ovarium of the hen. It lies under the epidermic coats of the yelk, and upon its proper coat. If the ovum, according to Valentin, be lacerated and its contents minutely examined, the cicatricula is found like a grayish white disk, which in its whole periphery is dense, granulous, and opake; but in the centre presents a clear, nongranulous, and perfectly disphanous point. Purkinje found, that when he removed the dark granulous mass by suction with a small tube, there remained a perfectly transparent vesicle filled with a pellucid lymph, which had a decidedly spherical form, but, being extremently delicate, was easily lacerated, and then its fluid escaped. As he found this which later naturalists have named- after its discoverer. Besides a perfectly colourless fluid, this contains one or more dark corpuscles, which appear as a nucleus through the including membrane in the shape of opake spots. The granulous membrane- its thickened portion, the so-called "cicatricula," - and the germinal vesicle, constitute those parts of the ovum which pass immediately into the original foundation of the embryo.
