Some marine nematodes from anoxic mangrove mud-flats contain densely packed intracellular inclusions within their tissues which are visible by light microscopy. Transmission electron microscopy of sections of Sabatieria wieseri, Terschellingia longicaudata and Sphaerolaimus papillatus shows these inclusions within the intestinal and other cells. Energy dispersive analysis of secondary X-rays by scanning electron microscopy of thick epoxy sections shows concentrations of Si, P, S, K, Ca and Fe in their tissues. EDS of secondary X-ray emissions from thin epoxy unstained sections by transmission electron microscopy shows these elements together with Na, Zn and Al concentrated in the intracellular inclusions. The physiological implications of these observations are discussed.
