This paper describes the ultrastructure of the mature spermatozoon of Heterolebes maculosus. It is the first study of this kind concerning the Opistholebetidae (Platyhelminthes, Digenea). The ultrastructural elements observed in the spermatozoon are: two axonemes with 9+"1" pattern of Trepaxonemata and their attachment zones, two mitochondria, a nucleus,(More)
In this paper, we describe the ultrastructural organisation of the spermatozoon of a Digenea Baccigerinae Pronoprymna ventricosa. This spermatozoon possesses the elements found in the others digeneans: two axonemes with 9 + "1" pattern, a mitochondrion, a nucleus, cortical microtubules and external ornamentations. However, this spermatozoon presents two(More)
This paper describes the ultrastructure of the mature spermatozoon of the digenean Helicometra epinepheli. The ultrastructural elements observed are: two axonemes with a 9+"1" pattern of Trepaxonemata, four attachment zones, a nucleus, two mitochondria, external ornamentation of the plasma membrane, spine-like bodies and cortical microtubules.

The ultrastructure of the spermatozoon of Siphoderina elongata was studied by transmission electron microscopy. A description and drawings of the mature spermatozoon are presented in this paper. Several ultrastructural elements of this male gamete have been observed: a nucleus, two mitochondria, two axonemes of 9 + "1" pattern, external ornamentation of the(More)
