This paper deals with the meiotic process in males of T. pubescens. The spermatocytes of this species are associated in clusters (rosettes) of some fifteen cells which are fairly synchronized during spermatogenesis. During meiosis, which is typically achiasmatic, 2 sets of chromosomes are eliminated into a narrow neck of cytoplasm (bud) which protrudes from the cell pole facing the centre of the rosette. The bud formation starts prior to the onset of the meiosis. The spindle that appears during… CONTINUE READING
