Abstract

Electron microscope studies on whole mounts of Euglena demonstrated that the pellicle was composed of alternate grooves and ridges which were orientated in a spiral and longitudinal direction with respect to the long axis of the animal (Saxe 1947; Groupe 1947). Wolkin and Palade (1953) have presented electron micrographs of sectioned Euglena and made brief reference to the pellicle. It is the purpose of this paper to present further details on the structure of the Euglena pellicle as seen in thinly sectioned material under the electron microscope.
