C, muscle fibre; CY, cytoplasm surrounding cell nucleus; S, cytoplasmic strand.
Fig. 1: Longitudinal section through endoderm of body wall, showing gland cells. Mowry colloidal iron/PAS/NYS stain. Photographed through a deep blue filter to emphazise the PAS staining of type "2" gland cells (arrowed), and the NYS positive type "1" gland cells (P) × 500. C, coelenteron; E, endoderm.
Fig. 2: The same section as Fig. 1, but photographed through a red filter to emphasize the Mowry colloidal iron positive type "3" gland cells (arrows), × 500.
