Caption: Liver fluke. Light micrograph of a transverse section through the anterior half of a liver fluke (Fasciola hepatica), a hermaphrodite tremotode worm and endoparasite that infects sheep. This section is in the region of the female reproductive organs. At far right, under the cuticle, are the vitaline glands (oval pink circles). Moving to the left, the dark purple-red circles are intestinal diverticula. Next are circular cavities (brown and black), which are the ovaries and eggs. The central area shows sections of the gut (purple). The large empty circles at left are parts of the uterus, some of which contain eggs. Magnification: x36 when printed at 10 centimetres across.
