Caption: Earthworm. Light micrograph of a transverse section through the body of a round segmented earthworm (Lumbricus terrestris), in the reproductive region. The central gut (oesophagus), is surrounded by the oesophageal glands (radiating pink lines), and the small red circles around the oesophageal glands are the pseudo-hearts. The dark purple areas are the male reproductive organs, the two areas with dark purple radiating lines are the seminal funnels, whilst the three other purple areas with white circles are the seminal vesicles producing sperm. Magnification: x14 when printed at 10 centimetres across.
