Sperm development was described in Drosophila dunni dunni , the most well known of the seven morphologically similar species of the dunni subgroup. Spermatids were observed to extend throughout the testis, almost entering the seminal vesicle, where they bury their heads in terminal epithelial cells, and begin to form coiled sperm bundles. The sperm bundle coil process appears to facilitate sperm transport through the testis. Coiling has been reported in D. melanogaster as well as many beetles… CONTINUE READING
