Spermatogenesis and spermiogenesis of the monozoic caryophyllidean cestode Wenyonia virilis (Woodland, 1923), an intestinal parasite of Synodontis schall (Pisces: Siluridae), have been investigated by means of transmission electron microscopy for the first time in Egypt. Spermatogenesis is of a rosette type; each spermatogonium undergoes four mitotic and two meiotic divisions resulting in the formation of sixty four spermatids. These spermatids undergo spermiogenesis and transform into mature… CONTINUE READING
