Ultrastructural observations on the elusive subtegumental cells of the viviparous gill monogenean, Macrogyrodactylus clarii


The ultrastructure of the tegument, including putative subtegumental cells, of the monogenean gill parasite Macrogyrodactylus clarii is described for the first time. The lateral cells are secretory in nature and can be classified into four types: T1 producing elongated, electron-dense, bodies (t1); T2 manufacturing electron-lucent vesicles (t2); T3… (More)
