Abstract

The structure of polar lobes in eggs of the freshwater prosobranch gastropod Amnicola limosa has been studied by light microscopy and by transmission electron microscopy. A cytoplasmic localization, discovered within the lobes, is described. Its morphology and subsequent pattern of dispersal are similar to that of the vegetal body in the polar lobes of Bithynia tentaculata.
