Spermatogenesis and the fine structure of the mature spermatozoon of Fasciola hepatica have been studied by transmission electron microscopy. The primary spermatogonia display a typical gonial morphology and occupy the periphery of the testis. They undergo 3 mitotic divisions to give rise to 8 primary spermatocytes forming a rosette of cells connected to a central cytophore. The primary spermatocytes undergo 2 meiotic divisions, resulting in 32 spermatids that develop into spermatozoa… CONTINUE READING
