Abstract The trichites of Strombidium and related genera have been considered either as a cytoskeletal armature or as extrusomes. To demonstrate their true nature, a study was undertaken on two marine Strombidium species by ultrastructural and cytochemical analysis as well as in vivo experiments. Trichites, extending from the cortex into the cell, are rod-shaped, membrane-bounded, and have a complex structure. The following elements of the trichites, are distinguishable: an electron-transparent… Expand
