Remarks: 

Digital voucher material for this specimen is available here DOI

Hosting the files externally is preferable, because the Scratchpads currently offer a poor user experience for browsing images and movies; for detailed study we recommend that you download the files to your local computer.

The images have usually been taken in a sequence using 4x, 10x, 20x, 40x, and 100x (oil) objectives and where available we have added images of a stage micrometer at the same magnifications to permit spatial calibration.

Sex: 
Hermaphrodite
