The archigregarine, Selenidium, is parasitic in the digestive tracts of some polychaete worms. The trophozoites of Selenidium are worm-like in appearance, and are attached by one end to the intestinal epithelium of the host, while the remainder of the organism performs rhythmic bending movements, reminiscent of nematode worms. The trophozoites have a multilayered, longitudinally folded pellicle, and beneath this are longitudinally oriented microtubules, arranged in precise fashions. The… CONTINUE READING
