An ultrastructural study of the early cercarial development in Prosorhynchoides borealis (Digenea: Bucephalidae) with special reference to formation of the primitive epithelium.


Primitive epithelium and outer tegumental layer formation during early cercarial development was studied in Prosorhynchoides borealis using electron microscopy. It demonstrated that germinal cells freely floating in the sporocyst body cavity divide to give rise to naked cell aggregates. These early embryos are highly irregular in outline and are composed of… (More)
