Figure 1: Light micrographs of Gyrodactylus gasterostei Gläser, 1974-nested like “Russian dolls.” (a) Two individuals: (1) containing a fully grown daughter in utero, notice the hooks (arrow); (2) with another daughter within her (3). One individual (*) showing an empty uterus (arrowed head). Scale bar = 0.5 mm. (b) Light micrograph of the massive infection on the caudal fin of the ectoparasite Gyrodactylus on Gasterosteus aculeatus L. host, notice the muscle elasticity and body extension of the monogenean (arrow) and one motionless worm (arrowhead). Scale bar: 2 mm
