    2. development of an additional mesodermal layer from the somatic mesoderm

    3. spreading of the dorsal mesodermal somites

    4. the fonnation of mesodennal pouches from the dorsolateral walls of the archenteron

  9. Somatopleure is a double layered tissue consisting of

    2. somatic mesoderm and ectoderm

    3. splanchnic mesoderm and endoderm

    4. somatic mesoderm and splanchnic mesoderm
