Figure 4. Transmission electron micrographs of the developmental stages of Nosema
fumiferanae postvittana in the midgut of the host, Epiphyas postvittana. (A) Binucleate meront,
bar = 0.5 µm. (B) Sporont, bar = 0.5 µm. (C) Sporoblast; bar = 0.5 µm. (D) Mature spore, bar =
0.2 µm. (E) Mature spore, bar = 0.2 µm; AD = anchoring disk; = exospore; EN = endospore; N =
nucleus; PF = polar filament; PV = polar vacuole. (F) All developmental stages; bar = 5 µm.
