AFLAGELLATED SPERMATOZOA OF HUHENTOMON AND ACERELLA (PROTURA, APTERYGOTA)

Abstract:

The spermatozoa of Huhentomon plicatunguis (Protura : Hesperentomidae) and Acerella tiarnea (Protura : Acerellidae) are aflagellate and of simple structure. An ovoidal nucleus with condensed chromatin is located at the end of the cell; the cytoplasm is devoid of organelles, except for mitochondria, and contains compact material derived from centriolar adjunct-like material.
