Fractal analysis of the morphology of in vitro spreading hemocytes of the Japanese scallop Mizuhopecten yessoensis and Pacific mussel Mytilus trossulus revealed significant differences in the cells of both species according to several parameters of quasi-fractal organization. These differences support the applicability of this approach for numerical description of complex forms of cells that are “wrong” from the point of view of classical geometry and the taxon specificity of the quasi-fractal organization of molluscan hemocytes. Interspecific distinctions in the morphologies of individuals and two and three cell conglomerates in the local dimension, mass-radial dimension, Kolmogorov’s dimensions, and lacunarity were revealed.
