The morphology of walls of syncytia induced by Nacobbus aberrans in tomato roots has been examined by scanning electron microscopy after digesting out the cytoplasm from the cells. A clear boundary exists between the gall cells which surround the syncytium and the transformed cells. Syncytial cells are interconnected by perforations through their walls; these perforations are numerous and are frequently round or oval in shape. Wall ingrowths are absent. The structure of these syncytia is compared with those induced by other endoparasites.
