This paper provides the first ultrastructural data on the spermatozoon of a pseudophyllidean cestode belonging to the family Echinophallidae, Paraechinophallus japonicus, parasitizing deep-sea fish Psenopsis anomala from Japan. The mature spermatozoon contains two axonemes of the 9+“1” trepaxonematan pattern, nucleus, cortical microtubules, and electron-dense granules. Its anterior extremity exhibits a single electron-dense crested body. One of the most interesting features of the mature… CONTINUE READING
