The eyespot of the marine dinoflagellate Glenodiniumfoliaceum is a flattened orange structure, more or less trapezoid in shape with an anterior hook-like projection. It is situated on the ventral side of the organism in the vicinity of the flagellar bases at the anterior end of the sulcus. In the electron microscope the eyespot is seen to contain two layers of osmiophilic granules 80-200 nm in diameter which usually show hexagonal close-packing. The eyespot is surrounded by a triple-membraned… CONTINUE READING
