  • The morphology of a new species of pelobionts Pelomyxa flava was studied by light and electron microscopy. The envelopes of P. flava are consist of a plasma membrane with a thick layer of weakly structured glycocalyx on its outer surface. Numerous flagella are often located at the apices of short conical pseudopodia. Kinetosomes of flagella reach length of 0.9 μm and are hollow with a pronounced central filament. The rootlet system is represented by three groups of microtubules: the radial… CONTINUE READING
