It has been proposed that the fertilized egg and early embryos exhibit the phenomenon of "gonomery," in which the products of the two pronuclei apparently do not fuse but remain distinct until the 69-cell stage (Conklin, 1901, 1902); however, because the nuclei in some other gastropods are bilobed, this claim needs to be verified.
