The present work investigated histological and cytological studies, using SEM, included sensory organs of flatworm Bipalium kewense. The shovel-headplate of B. kewense is limited all around its margin by distinct sensory organs, consisting of a row of sensory papillae, pits and eyespots. Sensory papillae and sensory pits are situated at the peripheral edge of worm-head whereas numerous eyespots are located within the margin of the dorsal shovelheadplate and along the body margin. Each eye is…

Comparative ultrastructural observations of the Egyptian schistosomes: Schistosoma mansoni and Schistosoma haematobium
TLDR
A characteristic feature in this study is unique of male of S. haematobium, the extensive formation of ridges and transformation to microvilli in the posterior region in males, which may provoke further study of schistosomes hosted in animal model for more detailed investigation at the molecular level.
The Role of Eudrillus eugenia in the Degradation of Paper Cup Waste and the Morphological, Physiological and Histological Changes in the Organism
TLDR
The results demonstrate that the earthworm employed for the degradation of paper cup waste undergoes oxidative stress, DNA damage and also tissue damage, however the earthworms have the capable of regaining its metabolic activity when inoculated into the new substrate.

Histochemical and ultrastructural features of the epidermis of the land planarian Bipalium adventitium
TLDR
The epidermis of the creeping sole is distinguished from that of adjoining regions by a “insunken” condition of the epithelial cells, a greater number of cilia per cell, and an absence of glandular secretions other than mucus.
Elektronenmikroskopische Untersuchungen über die Sinneskante des terricolen Turbellars Bipalium kewense Moseley (Tricladida)
SummaryThe sensory border of the land-dwelling turbellarian Bipalium kewense consists of the following cell types: Papillae and distal part of the epithelial folds are covered by epithelial cells,
Ultrastructural observations on rhabdite formation in the planarian, Artioposthia triangulata
The epidermis of the predatory terrestrial flatworm, Artioposthia triangulata has been examined by transmission electron microscopy for the presence of rhabdiform secretions. Two types of secretion
A new genus and species of terrestrial planarian (Platyhelminthes; Tricladida; Terricola) from Scotland, and an emendation of the genus Artioposthia
TLDR
Artioposthia triangulata and other species native to New Zealand are transferred to the new genus Arthurdendyus albidus gen. nov., sp.
A revision of the cosmopolitan land planarian Bipalium kewense Moseley, 1878 (Turbellaria: Tricladida: Terricola)
TLDR
The bipaliid fauna of Vietnam, to which B. kewense belongs, appears to have closer phenetic affinities with the faunas of adjacent southern rather than northern regions.
Pseudoparasitism of domestic and native animals by geoplanid land planarians.

TLDR
Three cases of pseudoparasitism of a pullet, Pygmy possum and domestic cat by geoplanid land planarians are reported in Australia, and it is believed that the incidents described arose from accidental attachment of land planarian to the animals concerned.
THE USE OF LEAD CITRATE AT HIGH pH AS AN ELECTRON-OPAQUE STAIN IN ELECTRON MICROSCOPY
TLDR
The stain reported here differs from previous alkaline lead stains in that the chelating agent, citrate, is in sufficient excess to sequester all lead present, and is less likely to contaminate sections.
