Caption: Threadworms in intestine. Coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of two threadworms (Trichostrongylus vitrinus) in the small intestine of a sheep. Threadworms (also known as roundworms) belong to the phylum Nematoda, which contains many different species of parasitic and free- living worms. T. vitrinus is an important parasite of sheep. Here, two threadworms have burrowed through the gut wall. Part of the cylindrical body of each worm is visible. The body is covered with a thick, tough cuticle secreted by the underlying ectoderm. Magnification: x160 when printed 10cm wide.
