This one is quite short but certainly the most important points. Fleury presents:

We assume that the blastodisc is a composite structure, namely a “sandwich”: Extra-Cellular Matrix/ cellular layers/Extra-Cellular Matrix. (p8, c1)

But later on it seems that the epiblast is considered to be the “sandwich”, the cell movements described being those of cells in epiblast, at least until ingression through the PS starts. What is bothering is that the “sandwich” is described as ECM/cellular layers/ECM.
