Abstract

Phase contrast and electron microscopic studies of the plasmodia of the phaneroplasmodium, aphanoplasmodium, and protoplasmodium types showed the presence of the usual organelles found in the cytoplasm of cells of higher organisms. Mitochondria are of the tubular type, there are both smooth and rough surfaced endoplasmic reticulum, Golgi membranes, vesicles and vacuoles of various types. Fibrils and filaments were seen in the cytoplasm, and there is a cell membrane of the usual type. Ribosomes and polysomes are seen in the ground plasm. No evidence of a centriole was ever seen.
