SummaryThe pigmented eyes of the oncomiracidium of the monogenean skin parasite Entobdella soleae are rhabdomeric in nature, the smaller anterior eyes each containing a single rhabdomere and the larger posterior eyes each containing two rhabdomeres. Each eye has a lens and a single cup-shaped pigment cell. There are differences in the arrangement of the microvilli in the rhabdomeres of the anterior and posterior eyes. Microvilli from each side of the anterior retinular cell are convergent. In… Expand
Ultrastructure of pigmented and unpigmented photoreceptors in cercariae of Trichobilharzia ocellata (Plathelminthes, Trematoda, Schistosomatidae): evidence for the evolution of parasitism in Neodermata
TLDR
It is hypothesized that both types of photoreceptors are relevant for distinct reactions in the host-finding behaviour of the cercariae, whereas the phaosomous-like receptors may be more widespread in members of the Schistosomatidae. Expand
First evidence of mitochondrial lensing in two species of the “Typhloplanoida” (Plathelminthes, Rhabdocoela): phylogenetic implications
Based on electron-microscopical observations the light-sensing organs ofProxenetes deltoides andPtychopera westbladi, representatives of the “Typhloplanoida” Trigonostominae, are described. TheExpand
Ultrastructure of pigmented photoreceptors of larvalMulticotyle purvisi (Trematoda, Aspidogastrea)
TLDR
The two eyespots of larvalMulticotyle purvisi lie on the posterior of the brain dorsal to the pharynx and the Phylogenetic implications and possible functions of the photoreceptors are discussed. Expand
Les taches pigmentaires de l'oncomiracidium d'Euzetrema knoepffleri (Monogenea): ultrastructure et évolution au cours du cycle biologique
TLDR
The comparative study of the evolution of the eyespots shows the disappearance of the cristalline lens in Entobdella, and the loss of rhabdomeric structures in Euzetrema, which seem related with the nature of the microbiotope of the adult. Expand
Eyes with, and without, pigment shields in the oncomiracidium of the monogenean parasiteDiplozoon paradoxum

SummaryThe median pigment zone in the head region of the oncomiracidium of the polyopisthocotylinean monogeneanDiplozoon paradoxum consists of two laterally directed cups, each of which contains aExpand
Histofluorescen t and Ultrastructural Identification of Aminergic Processes in the Opisthaptor of the Marine Monogene, Microcotyle sebastis (Polyopisthocotylea: Microcotylinae)
TLDR
Nerve location and associated vesicle morphology within the clamp suggest a sensory/neuromodulatory role associated with sensory receptors and a role other than sensory is suggested for nerves containing small dense/ dense-core vesicles within nerves adjacent to or within the haptoral neuropil.

Ultrastructure of spermiogenesis and mature spermatozoon of Angularella beema (Clerc, 1906) (Cestoda, Cyclophyllidea, Dilepididae)
TLDR
The ultrastructure of the spermiogenesis of a dilepidid cestode species is described for the first time and is characterised by absence of both flagellar rotation and proximodistal fusion. Expand
Ultrastructure of the photoreceptors of Allostoma sp. (Plathelminthes, Prolecithophora)
The four eyes of the prolecithophoran Allostoma sp. are disposed in two pairs in a dorsolateral position at the periphery of the brain and beneath its capsule. They are rhabdomeric pigment-cupExpand
A technique for preserving pigmentation in some capsalid monogeneans for taxonomic purposes
TLDR
The colour and distribution of pigmentation in monogeneans may be of taxonomic importance and this technique aids preparation of whole-mounts suitable for registration as type-material. Expand
ULTRASTRUCTURE DES MONOGÈNES: LISTES DES ESPÈCES ET DES ORGANES ÉTUDIÉS
TLDR
Bibliographical data concerning the ultrastructure of monogeneans in scanning electron microscopy (SEM) or transmission electron microscopeopy (TEM) are presented in two lists. Expand

TLDR
This paper presents more fully the observations included in that part of the abstract concerned with fine structure of the eyespot and investigates the use of electron microscopy to investigate such receptors in larval trematodes. Expand
Fine structure of photoreceptors in larval trematodes
TLDR
It seems that eyespots of miracidia have retained an ancestral pattern whereas the diversity of photoreceptors in cercariae reflects the varied phototactic behavior of those larvae which complete their life cycles by all the means known for cercarie with a free-swimming period. Expand

TLDR
The paths of the tendons associated with the accessory sclerites on the haptor of T. pini indicate that this gill parasite has evolved relatively recently from the ancestors of benedeniid skin parasites. Expand

Chemical nature of cercarial eye-spot and other tissue pigments.

  • Biology, Medicine
  • The Journal of parasitology
  • 1960
TLDR
The occurrence of pigmented eye-spots has been reported in the miracidial and cercarial stages of many digenetic trematodes and the chemical nature of the pigments associated with them is not known. Expand

  • G. Kearn

  • 1973
TLDR
Larvae, which had emerged from their eggs at some time between 20 and 80 min previously, responded to host skin, suggesting that an initial uninfective period is of short duration or absent, and there is a strong endogenous component to the rhythm. Expand

TLDR
This chapter discusses the histochemical methods applied to mucopolysaccharides, enzymes as histochemical agents, and sialomucins and strong acids such as hydrochloric acid and nitric acid rapidly produce important effects and should not be used when mucopoly Saccharides are being studied. Expand
