The systematic position of the Orthonectida remains enigmatic. According to a classical point of view, they are placed together with Dicyemida in the phylum Mesozoa. Traditionally, orthonectids are regarded as rather primitive organisms, lacking digestive, muscular, and nervous systems. Here, using confocal laser scanning microscopy (CLSM) and immunohistochemical methods, we describe the musculature and serotoninergic nervous system of female adults of Intoshia linei (Orthonectida).
