Comments P.461 left column top paragraph: "Encystation occurs after organisms have undergone nuclear replication but before cytokinesis: therefore, cysts contain four nuclei. They are approximately 5 by 7 to 10 μm in diameter and are covered by a wall that is 0.3 to 0.5 μm thick and composed of an outer filamentous layer and an inner membranous layer with two membranes."
