microscopic reconstructions based on serial sections have
been used to count the number of nuclei and identify
particular features of individual cells in the CNS of four
larvae of C. intestinalis.
||n=3. The similarities
in these counts (±4, or 1.5% from the mean) suggest that
the CNS, or at least part of it, could be eutelic, that is, could have a constant number of cells in this species from
individual to individual.
