Chromidina elegans (Foettinger, 1881) Gonder, 1905: morphology.

  • (A) General view of infected renal sac. Parasites are attached to the renal tissues by their anterior end with their cell body hanging free in the renal coelom.
  • (B) Tropho-tomont.
  • (C, D) Club-like and inflated anterior ends of tropho-tomonts (*: apical papillum).
  • (E) Apical ciliature consisting of 14 kineties that extend continuously through the entire cell body.
  • (F) Palintomy (arrow: protomites with condensed chromatin).
  • (G) Cell body ciliature.
  • (H) First generation of protomites (arrow: fission plan).
  • (I) Chain of second generation of protomites (arrows).
  • (J) Free tomite (*: micronucleus, arrow: macronucleus).
(A, B) Haematoxylin staining. (C, E, G–I) Chatton’s silver impregnation. (D, F, J) Osmium staining. Unless otherwise indicated, bar = 100 μm. (A–J) Neohapantotype and paraneohapantotypes.
