The ultrastructure of the sexual stages of Plasmodium gallinaceum during gametogenesis, fertilization, and early zygote transformation is described. New observations are made regarding the parasitophorous vacuole (PV) of gametocytes and the process of emergence in male and female gametocytes. Whereas female gametocytes readily disrupted both the PV membrane and host cell plasmalemma during emergence, male gametocytes frequently failed to break down the plasmalemma of the host cell.
