Anatomy muscles adult hypopus


The muscles of both adult and hypopial stages of Caloglyphus mycophagus are striated, with rather long sarcomeres (ca. 5 t-tm) and the fibres have a poorly developed sarcotubular system and are not divided into distinguishable myofibrils. Thick filaments of the hypopial muscles are smaller than those of the adult, and the ratio of thin to thick filaments is 6: 1 and 8.5: 1 in the hypopus and adult respectively.
