Abstract

Through a scanning electron microscope the eggs of were observed to have microvilli-like chitinous projections densely distributed and entangled on the surface, each more than 3 µ in length and 0.05 to 0.08 µ in diameter. The microspines of eggs of and were found to be thicker, shorter, and less widespread than were those of eggs, and not entangled. It is noteworthy that such small projections on the surface of schistosome eggs remain erect in the critical point drying procedure.
