This photomicrograph reveals some of the ultrastructural details exhibited by a single hookworm egg, which was undergoing the process of cellular division. Hookworm eggs range in size from 57µm-76µm x 35µm-47µm, and are oval or ellipsoidal in shape with a thin shell. The eggs of hookworms, Ancylostoma duodenale and Necator americanus, cannot be distinguished morphologically.
