Sathrophilus vernalis; focus plane on the cortex with ??mitochondria??
 
Sathrophilus vernalis; focus plane on the cilia
 
Sathrophilus vernalis; focus plane on the oral region. Also visible is the caudal flagellum.
 
Sathrophilus vernalis; specimen with no distance to the coverslide, so the cilia are compressed. Focus plane on the anterior part / oral region.
 
Sathrophilus vernalis; specimen heavily compressed by coverslide; focus plane on the macronucleus (MN), oral region (OR) and contractile vacuole (CV)
 
Sathrophilus vernalis; isolated macronucleus, different focus planes. There seem to be granules inside the macronuleus.
 
Sathrophilus vernalis; this specimen has been treated by destilled water. This leads to osmotic shock so that the plasma flows out when the cell bursts. The remaining cortex is shown here.
