Abstract

Summary

Particles of a newly described endosymbiont of Paramecium, here referred to as epsilon, have a fine structure that is essentially identical to that of Gram-negative bacteria. The symbionts occur only within loculi formed by extension of the outer membrane of the nuclear envelopes.
