 Ultrastructural observations of the gut caecal epithelium of Pricea multae revealed the presence of pigmented and non-pigmented digestive cells. The pigmented digestive cells were separated by a connecting syncytium and appeared elongated,with numerous vesicles appearing toward the apical cell surface. They were characterised by granular inclusions in the form of electron-dense pigments, which were eliminated by exocytosis. These cells and their lamellar connecting syncytium were observed… CONTINUE READING
