  • Abstract Morphological and cytochemical studies employing the electron microscope were conducted on the digestive tract of Megalodiscus temperatus. The digestive tract consisted of two regions: the foregut and the ceca. The foregut, characterized by a lining continuous with the general tegument of the organism, appeared to be primarily ingestive and sensory in function. The latter function was confined to the pharyngeal pouches whose linings contained numerous sensory structures. The cecal… CONTINUE READING
