  • The ultrastructure of the circulatory organs of Leiobunum limbatum, Mitopus morio, and Rilaena triangularis (Arachnida: Opiliones) has been investigated. We studied the organization of the heart, the myocardial contractile elements, its tubular system, organelles, and cell‐junctions. The epicardium exhibits a large number of longitudinally arranged microtubules and is attached to the myocardium by special membrane complexes. Because of these structures, the epicardium is interpreted as the… CONTINUE READING
