Under a relatively high magnification of 400X, this photomicrograph revealed some of the ultrastructural features exhibited at the anterior end of a hookworm rhabditiform larva. Rhabditiform (L1) larvae are 250-300µm long, and approximately 15-20µm wide. They have a long buccal canal, as was evidenced in this specimen, and an inconspicuous genital primordium, found at the posterior end.
