Tritiated reserpine was injected into the body cavities of specimens of Busycon canaliculatum (Mollusca, Gastropoda). Only the ganglia, liver, and kidney were radioactive throughout the 14-day experiment. Radioactivity of the kidney and liver increased after the first measurement; that of the ganglia declined during the first day but later remained constant.
