Ultrastructural and morphological features of the turbellarian worm Bothrioplana semperi and problem of monophyly of Seriata (Platyhelminthes, Turbellaria)


The structure and morphogenesis of rhabdites as well as morphology of pharynx walls in Bothrioplana semperi (Turbellaria, Bothrioplanidae) have been described. The ultrastructure of rhabdites and their morphogenesis in this species resemble those in Macrostomida (Turbellaria, Archoophora). The relative position of muscle layers in the pharynx walls draws… (More)
