The ultrastructure of macroscopic (2-7 mm) Sarcocystis hirsuta sarcocysts from naturally infected cattle from New Zealand was compared with the ultrastructure of 222-day-old S. hominis in experimentally infected cattle in the United States. The villar protrusions of S. hirsuta were approximately 8 microns long, constricted at the base, expanded laterally in the mid-region and tapered distally. Some of the villar tips were folded to form two to four conical projections. The distal portion of the… CONTINUE READING
