The fine structure of the midgut, pyloric region, Malpighian papillae, and hindgut of Sinentomon erythranum (Protura : Sinentomidae) is described. Midgut cells are rich in mineral concretions and are presumably involved in excretory activity; the pyloric chamber, a cavity in the proturan intestine behind the midgut, is formed by cells with microvilli pointing anteriorly; the secretion from 6 Malpighian papillae flows into this cavity.
