Expert Answer:

In the female reproductive system, the fimbria (plural, fimbriae) is a fringe of tissue around the ostium of the Fallopian tube, in the direction of the ovary.
The fimbria usually has millions of cilia that move about at very high speed and catch the egg once it is released. This process ensures the menstrual cycle is maintained, since the egg is redirected towards the fallopian tubes for possible fertilisation.
