The fine structure of the body wall, digestive tract and excretory system of Turbatrix aceti is described. The somatic and esophageal musculature contains fewer contractile elements in T. aceti than that of Panagrellus silusiae or Caenorhabditis briggsae. The significance of this observation in terms of movement and internal body pressure is discussed. A description is given of lipid distribution and mitochondria with unusual cristal configurations.
