Part of a 19th century description or 'blazon' of the Parbury escutcheon reads: "Or on a bend engrailed, cotised, also engrailed, azure between six torteaux, five escallops argent," which translates as "two thin gold scalloped diagonal bands on a blue scalloped band between six red spots with five silver shells."

This assumption corresponds with the observations that in the annelid Platynereis, the protein encoded by the homeobox containing gene engrailed is limited to the trochoblasts (Dorresteijn et al., 1993), whereas in Patella engrailed mRNA is limited to the trochoblasts (Damen et al., unpubl.).

Following development under C[O.sub.2]-acidified conditions, we measured 2 indicators of physiological response to low pH in 4 stages of larval development: (1) tolerance of acute thermal challenges and (2) quantitative real-time polymerase chain reaction-determined expression of 2 genes involved in shell formation (engrailed and ap24).
