Some ultrastructural observations on the midgut epithelium of Isohypsibius augusti (Murray, 1907) (Eutardigrada)

The midgut epithelial cells of the eutardigrade Isohypsibius augusti are organized into a convoluted monolayer. Only a single cell type could be distinguished although this cell type displayed considerable morphological variation. The midgut begins with crescent-shaped cells. More distally the cells are of variable height depending on the stored amount of… CONTINUE READING
