oviduct
In females passageway from ovary to uterus and leading to genital aperture [Moore and McCormick, 1969].
Passageway from ovary to genital aperture [McLaughlin, 1980].
The duct connecting the posterior lobe of the ovary to the spermatheca [Ingle, 1983].
Tube carrying ova from ovary to the exterior [Holdich and Jones, 1983].
(Order Cladocera):
Short and narrow section of female reproductive system between posterior part of each ovary and dorsal brood pouch [Stachowitsch, 1992].
(Order Notostraca):
Gonad [Stachowitsch, 1992].
(Order Diplostraca):
Gonad [Stachowitsch, 1992].
(Order Anostraca):
Section of female reproductive system between eeach ovary and single ovisac. Originates from ovary near first or second abdominal somite (= genital somite). Distal portion of oviduct (extending into ovisac) occasionally referred to as uterus, terminal end as vagina [Stachowitsch, 1992].
(Class Cephalocarida):
Section of female reproductive system between each ovary and gonopore. Highly elongated, extending posteriorly to 18th postcephalic segment and soubling back to 6th thoracomere. Eggs accumulate at point of flexure. Terminal section merges with vas deferens to form common duct (gonoduct) [Stachowitsch, 1992].
(Order Cumacea):
Section of female reproductive system between each ovary and gonopores on first segments (coxae) of third pereopods [Stachowitsch, 1992].
(Order Tanaidacea):
Section of female reproductive system between each ovary and gonopores on sixth thoracic segment (= fifth pereonite) [Stachowitsch, 1992].
(Order Decapoda):
Narrow section of female reproductive system extending from each dorsal ovary to gonopore on basal segment (coxa) of sixth thoracopod(= third pereopod). May be modified terminally to form seminal receptacle and vagina [Stachowitsch, 1992].
(Order Amphipoda):
Section of female reproductive system between each ovary and gonopores on ventral surface of fifth pereon segment (pereonite) [Stachowitsch, 1992].
(Order Isopoda):
Section of female reproductive system between each ovary and gonopores on ventral surface (sternite) of fifth pereon segment (pereonite) [Stachowitsch, 1992].
(Order Mysida):
Section of female reproductive system between each ovary and gonopores on bases (coxae) of sixth thoracopods [Stachowitsch, 1992].
(Order Stomatopoda):
Section of female reproductive system between each ovary and unpaired seminal receptacle [Stachowitsch, 1992].
(Order Leptostraca):
Relatively short, slender section of female reproductive system between each ovary and gonopore [Stachowitsch, 1992].
(Subclass Branchiura):
One of two short ducts leading from ovary to gonopore (vagina) on last thoracic somite (fourth thoracomere). Considered to function alternately [Stachowitsch, 1992].
(Subclass Cirripedia):
Section of female reproductive system between each ovary and gonopores at bases of first pair of cirri [Stachowitsch, 1992].
(Class Ostracoda):
Section of female reproductive system leading from ovary to gonopore/atrium on first abdominal segment (genital somite). Paired, originating at anterior end of ovary and giving rise to oviducal diverticula. Secretes material forming ovisacs [Stachowitsch, 1992].
(Class Ostracoda):
Section of female reproductive system leading from ovary to gonopore; may be developed distally into uterus. Seminal receptacle frequently opens into oviduct via canal (spiral canal). (paired, unpaired) [Stachowitsch, 1992].
(Class Remipedia):
Paired section of female reproductive system between ovary and female gonopore; extends dorsally above gut from head or trunk border to seventh trunk segment [Stachowitsch, 1992].
(Superorder Syncarida):
Section of female reproductive system between each ovary and gonopores on sixth thoracopods [Stachowitsch, 1992].
(Order Thermosbaenacea):
Relatively short, slender section of female reproductive system between each ovary and gonopores on sixth thoracic segment [Stachowitsch, 1992].
(Order Euphausiacea):
Slender section of female reproductive system between each ovary and corresponding female gonopore on coxae of sixth thoracopods [Stachowitsch, 1992].
