The membranelles of the AZM extending from the ventral side of the oral cavity are largely composed of 2 rows of cilia. A dikinetid of the somatic surface is also present. This dikinetid also has pigment vesicles containing electron opaque material close by. TEM taken on 7/24/67 by R. Allen with Philips 200 operating at 60kV. Neg. 4,500X. Bar = 1?m. Standard glutaraldehyde fixation followed by osmium tetroxide, dehydrated in alcohol, and embedded in an epoxy resin. Microtome sections prepared at approximately 75nm thickness. A print of the negative was scanned and processed in Photoshop. This image is best used for qualitative analysis. A high resolution image is available in the library at (CIL:38891) and can be used for quantitative analysis. Additional information is available at (http://www5.pbrc.hawaii.edu/allen/).
