This image of Halteria was fixed in cacodylate-buffered fixative and stained. The round, dark bodies, possibly pigment granules, were transparent in other preparations are electron-opaque following this protocol. The alveoli are flattened and inconspicuous. There is little evidence of an epiplasm. TEM taken on 11/8/68 by R. Allen with Philips 300 operating at 60kV. Neg. 12,500X. The negative was printed to paper and the image was scanned with a flatbed scanner and the 0.5?m bar added in Photoshop. This digitized image is available for qualitative analysis. A raw, unprocessed, high resolution version of this image (CIL:7590) is in the library and available for quantitative analysis.
