Between are details of the internal tubular anatomy, with the feeding tentacles at top, and the base at bottom. This page is from volume 48 (1753-4) of the journal 'Philosophical Transactions', published by the Royal Society of London. Ellis, an expert on corals, was elected a Fellow of the Royal Society in 1754.
