Caption: Coloured scanning electron micrograph (TEM) of Euglena gracilis cell pellicle and internal cytoplasmic organelles: golgi apparatus (orange and yellow), chloroplast (green), mitochondria (red), pyrenoid body (light yellow), ribosomes (dark blue), vacuole (light purple), nuclear membrane (blue), nucleus (dark purple), chromatin (purple). Euglena spp. can change their shape readily due to microtubules located beneath their cell membrane (pellicle, dark yellow). Euglena gracilis is a fresh water, flagellated protozoan often classified in a group called euglenoids. Euglena spp. normally contain chloroplasts but in prolonged darkness they become heterotrophic and engulf other small organisms. Magnification: x5,505 when shortest axis printed at 25 millimetres.
