This photomicrograph reveals some of the ultrastructural morphology exhibited by a gravid proglottid from a Taenia solium tapeworm. The number of primary lateral uterine branches, represented by the dark, India ink stained irregularities, allows differentiation between the two species. T. saginata shows 15-20 branches on each side (see PHIL 5259), while T. solium displays 7-13 branches.
