Remnants of Wolffian ducts in the paroöphoron. One of 30 to 34 tubules that develop within the mesonephros and empty into the mesonephric duct. Most are transitional, persisting for only a short time. Some persist in adult males as the efferent ductules of the testis; others persist only as vestigal structures.

Der Nebeneierstock des Weibes, das längst vermisste Seitenstück des Nebenhodens des Mannes u.s.w. Heidelberg, 1847.
