Scanning electron microscope observations on Telosentis exiguus (Acanthocephala), an endoparasite of Atherina boyeri (Osteichthyes, Atherinidae), provided more detailed and precise data on surface structures of taxonomic relevance. Trasmission electron microscope observations on the integument revealed the presence of numerous channels which penetrate the integumental syncytium and, through branching, increase (up to 61 times) the absorptive surface area.

Abstract

Scanning electron microscope observations on Telosentis exiguus (Acanthocephala), an endoparasite of Atherina boyeri (Osteichthyes, Atherinidae), provided more detailed and precise data on surface structures of taxonomic relevance. Trasmission electron microscope observations on the integument revealed the presence of numerous channels which penetrate the integumental syncytium and, through branching, increase (up to 61 times) the absorptive surface area. Bundles of filaments and an electrondense cytoplasmic matrix in the outermost region provide a cytoskeletal support. © 1990 Taylor & Francis Group, LLC.
