Abstract

This research is part of a study on the ultrastructure of coelomocytes and cellular complexes from the body cavity of sipunculans. New free-swimming elements called microvillar cells in the trunk coelom of Thysanocardia nigra Ikeda, 1904 are examined using transmission electron microscopy. The cell harbors a giant vesicle filled with a fibrous matrix and rosettes of minute osmiophilous granules. The nucleus is peripheral, and a few cell organelles are situated between the cell membrane and the vesicular membrane. The cell membrane bears numerous microvilli with enlarged apical points. Numerous small microvillar vesicles swimming in the coelomic fluid separate from the microvillar cells. The functional morphology of coelomocytes and cellular complexes is discussed.
