Several characters involved in the life cycle in dicyemids were examined to understand reproductive strategy and adaptations to cephalopod hosts. In most dicyemids distinctly small numbers of sperms are produced in a hermaphroditic gonad (infusorigen). The number of eggs and sperms are roughly equal (means of the number of sperm:egg=1:1.58). An inverse proportional relationship was found between the number of infusorigens and the gametes, suggesting a trade-off between them. Fecundity was… Expand
