In the sterns of developing maize plants and in the young leaves two to several bodies resembling nuclei are commonly present in the majority of the cells. These bodies vary much in shape and size in the same cells. Some of them are similar to the x bodies described in maize and sugar cane affected with a mosaic disease.
