Title: Cystidicola farionis male spicule
Description: This image shows the everted needle shaped spicule of a male of the Cystidicola farionis species. Spicules are characteristic copulatory structures of male nematodes and can be useful in distinguishing species as they differ in size, shape and number (most nematodes have 2). For similar pictures of different species please see the images entitled andquot;Cucullanus truttae male spiculeandquot; and andquot;Haplonema tenerrimum male spiculeandquot;.
