Figure 2

Light micrographs of new Pseudotrichonympha specimens. (AC) Differential interference contrast images of Pseudotrichonympha leei from Coptotermes gestroi showing the overall body shape, with the long posterior rostral flagella emerging below the pointed apical cap, and shorter post-rostral flagella (A). (B,C) Show the commonly observed robust collar (B) and cup-shaped anterior of stressed cells (C). (D,E) Differential interference contrast images of Pseudotrichonympha pearti from Prorhinotermes simplex showing the overall body shape, single nucleus, and detail of the rostral region, including the apical cap, rostral tube, and long posterior rostral flagella. (F) Phase contrast images (taken in the field) of Pseudotrichonympha lifesoni from Coptotermes cf. acinaciformis showing the basic body shape and size and the single central nucleus. Bars represent 50 µm.
