Two interesting cases of polymely of the chelicerae were obtained after using thermal shocks in the form of temperatures of 14 and 32[degree]C acting alternately on spider embryos in the first 10 days of development. An analysis of histological sections made by the paraffin method and stained with haematoxylin and eosin demonstrated changes in the neuromerism of the central nervous system.
