The weir consists of interdigitating ribs all of which form one circle, i.e. alternating ribs do not have distinctly 'internal' or 'external' positions. Cytoplasmic cords are absent and all ribs, i.e. those continuous with the proximal canal cell and those continuous with the terminal cell, form external leptotriches. At least some external leptotriches have interconnected branches extending along the flame bulb. Internal… CONTINUE READING
