Abstract

This study was restricted to the trophozoite stage of Endamoeba terrapinae. The most striking feature found was lack of cellular components such as are found in Amoeba proteus and the giant amoeba. No structures resembling mitochondria, Golgi bodies, or fat globules were observed. The only defined structures with the exception of the nucleus were vesicles containing bacteria and electron-dense granules. These cytoplasmic components stained lightly with hematoxylin.
