          Abstract

          The stichosome (posterior glandular esophagus) of Capillaria pterophylli Heinze, 1933 consists of large gland cells (stichocytes) and lumenal epithelium with cuticular lining. Both structures are enclosed in a reticulum of muscle cells. The stichocyte cytoplasm contains small cisternae of rough endoplasmic reticulum, Golgi complexes, one kind of electron dense secretory granules, mitochondria and a branching system of intracellular collecting ducts without filament bundles around them.
