Ribbon-like longitudinal fibers of the body wall of enchytraeids and lumbriculids are grouped in fuctional units. The organization of subsarcolemmal cisternae, membrane foldings and extracellular spaces between fibers is described. The data seem to indicate that the spaces between fibers within each functional unit are interpretable as T-tubules of a(More)
The helical muscle fibers of Enchytraeus minutus (Annelida, Enchytraeidae) have been investigated with respect to their development. We have shown that longitudinal fibers, in the cocoon, begin to develop as platymyarian fibers, then develop into shallow coelomyarian ones and finally, just before hatching, reach a flat circomyarian stage. After hatching,(More)
