To our knowledge, this paper describes the first ultrastructural results on spermiogenesis and the spermatozoon of a Digenea belonging to the family Deropristidae, Deropristis inflata. Spermiogenesis follows the usual pattern found in the digeneans, but a single noteworthy characteristic concerns the centriole, which presents a “prominent pear-shaped electron-dense region.” Spermiogenesis in D. inflata begins with the formation of a differentiation zone. The two centrioles give rise to flagella… CONTINUE READING
