Caption: Planaria flatworm. Light micrograph of a transverse section through the body of an unsegmented Planaria flatworm. Planarians are free-living aquatic flatworms. This section is taken through the pharynx, a circular tube in the centre of the body. The pharynx is at the posterior end of the worm and serves to catch prey by turning inside out. The lateral cavities (holes) contain branches from the intestine. Under the epidermis (outer layer) there are layers of muscles, which allow the body to bend. Magnification: x36 when printed at 10 centimetres across.
