The regeneration of the anterior portion of the body after fission was studied in the holothurian Cladolabes schmeltzii using electron microscopy methods. Following fission, the posterior portion of the digestive tube, cloaca, and respiratory trees remain in the posterior fragment of the body. The regeneration comprises five stages. In the first stage, connective‐tissue thickening (an anlage of the aquapharyngeal bulb) occurs on the anterior end between the torn‐off ends of the ambulacra. Most of the lost anterior organs developed in the second and third stages. The structures of water‐vascular system and nerve ring form through dedifferentiation, proliferation, and migration of cells of the radial water‐vascular canals and the radial nerve cords, correspondently. The lost digestive system portion is restored through the formation and merging of two anlagen. The digestive epithelium of the esophagus and pharynx develops from lining cells of microcavities near the central portion of the connective‐tissue thickening, which probably migrate from the epidermis. The second gut anlage develops through transformation of the anterior gut remnant portion. The enterocytes partly dedifferentiate, but the epithelium retains integrity. The gut anlage grows down the mesentery and joins the regenerating aquapharyngeal bulb. In the fourth and fifth stages, all lost organs are formed and have nearly normal structure. The regeneration was concluded to occur through morphallactic rearrangements of the remaining parts of organs. Epithelial morphogenesis is the key development mechanism of the digestive, water‐vascular, and nervous systems.
