The cuticle of young, adult Caenorhabditis briggsae contains seven layers. In old nematodes fine structure changes related to aging were observed in two layers. The outer osmiophilic membrane became more defined and in a few cases separated from the external cortical layer. Also, an electron-dense material and electron-dense balls occurred within the fluid-filled layer. The possible significance of these observations is discussed.
