A high resolution view near the oral apparatus of the attachment site of a microtubule filament bundle, fibrous interconnections, and a rod near a basal body that is out of the section plane in this TEM. Discoidal vesicles probably involved in digestion are aligned along the inside edge of the rod as are the extrusive organelles, the toxicysts. Standard glutaraldehyde fixation followed by osmium tetroxide, dehydrated in alcohol and embedded in an epoxy resin. Microtome sections prepared at approximately 75nm thickness. TEM taken on 5/28/69 by R. Allen with Philips 300 operating at 60kV. Neg. 14,800X. The raw film was scanned with an Epson Perfection V750 Pro. This high resolution image is suitable for quantitative analysis. Additional information available at (http://www5.pbrc.hawaii.edu/allen/).
