Under a magnification of 400X, this photomicrograph reveals ultrastructural details displayed at the tail-end of two parasitic nematodes (roundworms), both in their filariform, infective stage of development, a Strongyloides sp. larva on the left, and a larva of an unknown species of hookworm on the right. Note the fork shaped tail of the Strongyloides sp. larva, compared to the tapered tail tip of the hookworm. See PHIL 5221, depicting another view of this morphologic difference.
