Grazing section through an accumulation of uncoated cupulas in the process of attachment to and fusion with a food vacuole membrane. The small round pores apparently represent early stages of fusion of cupulas with the food vacuole membrane. TEM taken on 3/7/72 by R. Allen with Hitachi HU11A operating at 75kV. Neg. 19,500X. Bar = 0.5µm. The negative was printed to paper and the image was scanned to Photoshop. This digitized image is available for qualitative analysis. There is a high resolution version of this image in the library (CIL:39459) which is available for quantitative analysis. Additional information available at (http://www5.pbrc.hawaii.edu/allen/).
