Structure of the tegument and ectocommensal microorganisms of Gyliauchen nahaensis (Digenea: Gyliauchenidae), an inhabitant of herbivorous fish of the Great Barrier Reef, Australia.
J Parasitol. 1999 Dec; 85(6):1047-52.JP

Abstract

The ultrastructure of the tegument and tegument-associated microorganisms of the gyliauchenid digenean Gyliauchen nahaensis is described by transmission and scanning electron microscopy. The tegument is devoid of surface spines and is characterized by a moderately folded apical membrane, abundant vesicles, basal mitochondria, a folded basal plasma membrane, and a thick basal matrix. Microorganisms form a dense biofilm on the tegument of the posterodorsal surface and the excretory papilla. At least 7 microbial morphotypes were identified, including eubacteria, spirochaetes, and nanobacteria.
