Figure 4.

A descriptive diagram of Stentor coeruleus. All of the features shown are on the cell surface, except for the macronuclear nodes, the micronuclei, and the contractile vacuole, all three of which are located just beneath the surface. The cortical fibrillar system, not shown in the diagram, is located within the clear stripes between the granular (pigmented) stripes. From Figure 1 of [118].
