  • SummaryThe spermiogenesis and sperm ultrastructure of Anguilla australis schmidtii and A. dieffenbachii is described. During spermiogenesis the chromatin material condenses into the crescent-shaped head of the mature sperm. By elongation of the sperm head the mitochondrion is displaced to the anterior of the head remote from the posterior centriolar apparatus. A ciliary rootlet becomes segregated during spermiogenesis to form a membrane covered, striated, rod-like appendage. From the proximal… CONTINUE READING
