The spermiogenesis of the Onchobothriidae Tetraphyllidea A. filicolle filicolle is similar to that of the other Onchobothriidae. In this study, it is proved that: --the longitudinal displacement of the axonemes seen in the spermatozoon results from the sliding of one of the two axonemes during spermiogenesis. --the basal bodies and their attached rootlets(More)
The comparison of the ultrastructure of spermatozoa in Cestodes from seven different orders shows that they have the same general pattern of organization. The main common features are following: (a) a long thread-like body; (b) an elongated nucleus; (c) cortical microtubules underlying plasma membrane; (d) the absence of mitochondria and of a typical(More)
Caulobothrium longicolle (Linton, 1890) and Phyllobothrium gracile (Weld, 1855) (Cestoda: Tetraphyllidea, Phyllobothriidae) have the same embryonic development with the following characteristic data: --a small number of vitelline cells (2 or 3) pass with the zygote in the ootype;--a non operculate thin egg-shell;--the entire and equal zyhote cleavage(More)
The embryonic development from the egg to the oncosphere is examined in three Cestoda: Acanthobothrium coronatum (Rud., 1819), Acanthobothrium filicolle, Zschokke, 1888 and Acanthobothrium zschokkei Baer, 1948 (Tetraphyllidea, Onchobothriidae). The three ontogeneses have in common the following data: -- Two vitelline cells pass with the zygote into the(More)
