The occurence of Isoparorchis hypselobagri in the fresh water fishes from eastern Japan was investigated.
Among the 35 species of fishes examined I. hypselobagri were found only in Ophicephalus argus, Parasilus asotus, Pseudogobio esocinus and Hemibarbus barbus. P. esocinus and H. barbus were listed as new host records. A mature form was found in the air bladder in O. argus. This was the first record of a natural infection in mature form from O. argus.
The incidence of infecton was in high in fresh water fishes from the down stream area of the River Tone.
A survey on Clonorchis metacercaria in fresh water fishes from Lake Kasumigaura and Lake Kitaura, Ibaraki Prefecture. (in Japanese)
鈴木了司 ----- pp. 20-22 [PDF]
A survey was conducted in 1964 and 1965 in an attempt to get information about Clonorchis metacercaria in fresh water fishes in Lake Kasumigaura and Lake Kitaura, Ibaraki Prefecture.
The metacercaria were found in Sarcocheilichthys variegatus and Acheilognathus lanceolata collected from Lake Kasumigaura.
A reduction in the number of Clonorchis metacercaria found in fresh water fishes was reported.

Sa. Kamegai ----- pp. 1-8 [PDF]
In Japan, Diplozoon nipponicum are detected on the gills of Cyprinus carpio and Carassius carassius. The infected fishes are obtained mainly in lakes and limited ponds. For the purpose of obtaining the embryo, the author cultivated three eggs which were laid from the adult worm under the microscope. After eight days, the oncomiracidium was hatched from the eggshell. In the oncomiracidium, the author recognized a sticky gland, sucker, eyespots, and a pair of clamp and a pair of larval hooks. The structure of the oncomiracidium resembles that of D. paradoxum.

- Review of the Japanese species of Cystidicola, Metabronema and Rhabdochona (Nematoda) from salmonoid fishes.
L. Margolis ----- pp. 23-44 [PDF]
From a review of pertinent literature on the Japanese species of Cystidicola, Metabronema and Rhabdochona from salmonoid fishes, the 16 named species have been reduced to 15 and 11 of them have been distributed among three genera as follows: Rhabdochona oncorhynchi (Fujita, 1921) Fujita, 1927 (syns. Cystidicola o. F., 1921; Rhabdochona o. F., 1940), R. fujiii (Fujita, 1921) Fujita, 1927 (syns. Cystidicola f. F., 1921; Rhabdochona fujii (Fujita) of Kobayashi, 1935, 1936; Rhabdochona fujii Fujita (?1941) of Rasheed, 1965), R. salvelini Fujita, 1927, and R. amago Yamaguti, 1935; Cystidicoloides tenuissima (Zeder, 1800) Rasheed, 1966 (syns. Spiroptera salvelini Fujita, 1922; Cystidicola s. (F., 1922) Dollfus and Campana-Rouget, 1956; Sterliadochona a. (F., 1922) Roytman, in press); Salverinema salmonicola (Ishii, 1916) Margolis, 1966 (syns. Oxyuris sp. Kishida, 1905; Ancyracanthus s. I., 1916; Cystidicola s. (I., 1916) Fujita, 1927; Cystidicola chitosensis Fujita, 1940; "Cystidicola farionis" of Zhukov, 1960; Salverinema cristata Trofimenko, 1962; Pseudometabronema sachalinense Bogdanova, 1963), S. iwata (Fujita, 1928) n. comb. (syns. Cystidicola i. F., 1928; Metabronema i. F., 1928) Fujita, 1937), S. oncorhynchi (Fujita, 1939) n. comb. (syns. Metabronema o. F., 1939; Cystidicola o. (F., 1939) Yamaguti, 1961), S. kosigii (Fujita, 1939) n. comb. (syns. Metabronema k. F., 1939), S. amemasu (Fujita, 1939) n. comb. (syns. Metabronema a. F., 1939; Cystidicola o. (F., 1939) Rasheed, 1966), S. ishiii (Fujita, 1941) n. comb. (syns. Metabronema salvelini F., 1939; M. ishiii F., 1941; Rhabdochona i. (F., 1941) Yamaguti, 1961). The generic position of the remaining four species was left unsetted bacouse of insufficient available morohological informaton. These are Cystidicola brevicauda Fujita, 1939, C. chika Fujita, 1941 (syns. C. minuta Fujita, 1940; Metabronema minutum (F., 1940) Yamaguti, 1961), C. mesopi Fujita, 1940, and Metabronema laticauda Fujita, 1939. It is not likely that all species of Salvelinema and possibly Rhabdochona are valid. Examination of syntype or topotypic material would be necessary to settle questions of synonymy at the specific level.

Sh. Kamegai ----- pp. 5-11 [PDF]
Plectognathotrema (Alloplectognathotrema) Tsushimaense is described from the intestine of Navodon modestus caught near Tsushima Island, Sea of Japan. Eight adhesive organs sui generis were found in the acetabulum. Cephaloporidae Travassos, 1934 to which this parasite belongs is briefly reviewed. Plectognathotrema Layman was placed in a new subfamily Plectognathotrematinae.
- A preliminary study on the disc electrophoretic patterns of Paragonimus kellicotti Ward, 1908 adult worms.
K. Yoshimura, Y. Hishinuma & M. Sato ----- pp. 12-17 [PDF]
Disc electrophoretic patterns were prepared from a whole worm saline extract obtained from 2 adult worms of Paragonimus kellicotti. A minimum of 21 distinct protain bands was separated, 19 of which were highly reproducible, i. e. identified from 90-100% of gels. Densitometric tracings of the electrophoretic patterns always yielded 8 prominent peaks which characterized this species. The patterns of P. kellicotti. were distinctly differnt not only from those of P. westermani, P. ohirai and P. iloktsuenensis but from that of P. miyazaki. Major differnces in patterns between P. kellicotti and P. miyazaki are observed in the mid-gel region while the two species have similar pattaerns at both ends of the gel column.
- A preliminary report on the experimantal infection of Oncomelania nosophora (Robson, 1915) with Paragonimus sadoensis Miyazaki et al., 1968.
S. C. Hembree, E. Miyasaka & J. E. Williams ----- pp. 18-20 [PDF]
Previous workers have successfully infected the small Oncomelania nosophora with 4 species of Paragonimus. Therefore, this snail was exposed to P. sadoensis. This exposure produced a 69.5% rate of infection. No morphological changes could be observed in the cercariae which had shed from O. nosophora.
- On Diplozoon nipponicum Goto, 1891. Part III. The seasonal development of the reproductive organs of Diplozoon nipponicum parasitic on Cyprinus carpio.
Sa. Kamegai ----- pp. 21-25 [PDF]
137 specimens of Diplozoon nipponicum parasitic on Cyprinus carpio collected during two years from 1965 to 1967 were examined. It may be concluded that the development of the reproductive organs begins in autumn in testis and is completed by the end of winter, while the ovary willbe completed at the beginning of the spring, and the oviposition occurs mainly in summer.
- On some nematodes of birds from India. Part 1. Filariidae and Dipetaronematidae.
D. S. Jairajpuri & A. H. Siddiqi ----- pp. 26-32 [PDF]
A new genus and new species, Farooqifilaria pecta belonging to the family Filariidae is reported from the heart of Anser indicus (Latham). It resembles Tetracheilonema in having 4 lips, undivided esophagus and a functional anus, but differs in the absence of a chitinous ring and a buccal capsule and in having a short muscular esophagus, annulated cuticle, straight tail and vulva just behind the nerve ring. Two new genara, Francolinema and Francofilaria from Francolinus pondicerinus (Gmelin) and a new species, Aproctoides crassum from Sturnus contra L., are reported under the family Dipetalonematidae. Francolinema n. gen. is close to Lemdana but differs by its smaller body size, tail and spicule ratio. Francofilaria n. gen., resembles Cardiofilaria but differs in the absence of a cuticular thicking at base of stoma, number and arrangement of cephalic papillae, esophagus divided into muscular and glandular portions and the absence of cloacal papillae.

Parasites of Turbellarians: Records of several species of endoparasites of freshwater planarians. (in Japanese)
M. Kawakatsu ----- pp. 37-47 [PDF]
The occurrences of several species of the endoparasites from some freshwater planarian species are recorded in this paper. They are as follows:
1) Glegarinid species found in the parenchyma as well as in the digestive tract of the Japanese freshwater planarians (Pls. I, Figs. A-F, II, Figs. A-F, Ill, Figs. A-G). The encysted specimens of the glegarinid species were detected in some slides of Dugesia japonica Ichikawa et Kawakatsu, Phagocata iwamai Ichikawa et Kawakatsu, Polycelis schmidti (Zabusov), Dendrocoelopsis lacteus Ichikawa et Okugawa and Dendrocoelopsis ezensis Ichikawa et Okugawa. The glegarinid species recorded in the present paper were detected in the slides of Dugesia japonica from Nikko City and of Dendrocoelopsis lacteus from Nayoro City. The encysted specimens are spherical and/or ovoid in shape. They are 120 to 310 μ in diametre. This species is closely related to an European glegarinid species Lankesteria planariae.
2) Glegarinid species found in the pharynx tissue of Dugesia lindbergi De Beauchamp from the vicinity of Rawalpindi in West Pakistan (Pl. II, Fig. G). Only three encysted specimens of this glegarinid species were detected in my slides. They are spherical in shape and are 50 to 60 μ in diametre. There is a slight doubt whether this species may not be a glegarinid species, i. e., it may be a trematode cyst.
3) Ciliate species found in the digestive tract of the Japanese freshwater planarian, Phagocata iwamai Ichikawa et Kawakatsu from Wakkanai City in Hokkaido (Pl. II, Figs. H-I). A considerable number of this ciliate species was detected in my slides. They are spindle form in shape and are 60 to 80 μ in long axis and about 20 μ in short axis. The species may be related to an European endoparasitic ciliate species Sieboldiellina planariarum.
4) Nematode species found in the pharynx tissue of the Japanese freshwater planarians (Pl. IV, Figs. A-D). The endoparasitic nematode species was found in the muscle layers of the pharynx of Dugesia japonica Ichikawa et Kawakatsu, Phagocata vivida (ljima et Kaburaki), Polycelis sapporo (Ijima et Kaburaki) and Polycelis schmidti (Zabusov) from several localities. The nematode species recorded in the present paper were detected in the slides of Dugesia japonica from Matsuyama City. Every specimen of planarians examined was infected. This nematode species attains a length of 300 to 600 μ. About 10 to 20 specimens of nematode species were found in one pharynx of the host worm.
5) Nematode species found in the pharynx tissue of Dugesia gonocephala (Duges) from Strasbourg in France (Pl. IV, Figs. E-G). Many specimens of this nematode species were detected in my slides. The incidence of infection was high in this population. They are small in size and attain a length of 90 to 150 μ. About 30 nematode specimens were found in one pharynx of the host worm.
Every slide used in this study is retained in Professor Kawakatsu's room of Fuji Women's College, Sapporo.
The incidence of a natural infection of the glegarinid species found in the Dendrocoelopsis lacteus population in Nayoro City was also investigated. It was observed in this locality that the total number of the infected specimens of planarians has largely increased according to the increment of the pollution of water where planarians inhabited (Table I). In the laboratory cultures the infected planarians were eventually disintegrated.

- Three new digenetic trematodes: Pseudopalaeorchis elongatus n. g., n. sp., Hurleytrematoides japonicus n. sp. and Lasiotocus baiosomus n. sp. (Monorchidae Odhner, 1911) from marine fishes of Tsushima Island, Sea of Japan.
Sh. Kamegai ----- pp. 1-10 [PDF]
Three new monorchids, including a new genus, are described from the intestines of marine fishes caught near Tsushima Island, Sea of Japan. Pseudopalaeorchis elongatus n. g., n. sp. (Asymphylodorinae Szidat, 1943) from Monocentris japonicus is characterized by its body shape, vitellaria being divided into pre- and postovarian groups, and the structure of the terminal genitalia. Hurleytrematoides japonicus n. sp. (Postmonorcheidinae Yamaguti, 1958) from Chaetodontoplus septentrionalis differs from all other known members of Hurleytrematoides by its large body size, the shape of the cirrus pouch and the genital pore being located at the submedian postacetabular level. Lasiotocus baiosomus n. sp. (Lasiotocinae Yamaguti, 1958) from Hemiramphus sajori differs from the most closely related species L. minutus and L. parvus by its longer caeca, the shape of ovary and the egg size.
- A new digenetic trematode Cladolecithotrema callionymi n. g., n. sp. (Hemiuridae) of marine fishes from Sagami Bay.
A. Ichihara ----- pp. 11-14 [PDF]
A new hemiurid, Cladolecithotrema callionymi n. g., n. sp. belonging to Trifoliovariinae Yamaguti, 1958 is described from the rectums of marine fishes, Callionymus lunatus, C. flagris (?) and Calliurichthys japonicus from Sagami Bay. It is characterized by seminal vesicle being entirely preacetabular, having stomach portion, four-lobed ovary, vitellaria being branched, absence of Laurer's canal.
- Studies on the genus Decemtestis Yamaguti, 1934. Allodecemtestis n. gen., for Decemtestis biacetabulata Srivastava, 1936.
M. Hafeezullah ----- pp. 15-19 [PDF]
Intraspecific variation in Decemtestis Yamaguti, 1934 are discussed on the basis of specimens of two Indian and one Korean species of the genus reported here from new hosts and new localities. Indian species are: D. mehral Srivastava, 1936 and D. brevicirrus Srivastava, 1936, and the Korean species is D. kobayashii Park, 1939. A new genus Allodecemtestis is proposed for D. biacetabulata Srivastava, 1936 and D. pseudolabri Manter, 1954. Consequently, these two species become Allodecemtestis biacetabulata n. comb., and A. pseudolabri n. comb.
- Further studies on the differnces in susceptibility of four strains of inbred mice to infection with Schistosoma japonucum.
K. Yoshimura, Y. Hishinuma & M. Sato ----- pp. 21-25 [PDF]
This study was conducted to investigate the susceptibility of 4 strains (AKR, CF#1, C3H/He and KK) of inbred mice to infection with Schistosoma japonucum. The worm recovery was highest in KK strain (50%), followed by C3H/He (42%), AKR (42%) and CF#1 (38%) respectively. The worm burden of the females of strain KK was significantly higher than that of the males. The worm maturity was highest in AKR strain (98.1%) and lowest (89.9%) in the KK strain.

- On some parasites of a coelacanth (Latimeria chalumnae): A new monogenea, Dactylodiscus latimeris n. g., n. sp. (Dactylodiscidae n. fam.) and two larval helminths.
Sa. Kamegai ----- pp. 1-5 [PDF]
A new species, Dactylodiscus latimeris, which represents a new genus of Monogenea, is described and placed in the proposed new family Dactylodiscidae in Dactylogyroidea Yamaguti, 1963. The parasites were taken on July 2, 1967 from the gills of Latimeria chalumnae caught off Anjouan Island, Comoro on December 20, 1966. The host fish had been preserved in concentrated formalin for seven months before the present examination. This new genus differs from any known family of Dactylogyroidea in having two pairs of sui generis accessory adhesive discs on the opisthohaptor. Two larval helminths, Tentacularia sp. (Cestoda) and Anisakis sp. (Nematoda), were also recovered. The formaer was found in the stomach and the latter in the washings of the body cavity (?).

- A new digenetic trematode Procerozoum abei n. g., n. sp. (Didymozoidae), from the body cavity of flying fish from Japan.
Sh. Kamegai ----- pp. 15-18 [PDF]
Procerozoum abei n. g., n. sp. is described from the body cavity of Cypselurus poecilopterus caught on the Pacific coast of Japan. The present genus is distinguished from the closely related Skrjabinozoum Nikolaeva et Paruchin, 1969 as follows: (1) the shape of the body is filiform without forming a prominent neck portion near the anterior end of the body; (2) the entire body length is decidedly longer (21-35 times length); (3) the testis is single; (4) the receptaculum seminis is absent; and (5) there is nogenital papilla lateroventral to oral sucker.
- On some nematodes of birds from India. Part II. Spiruridae and Hedruridae.
D. S. Jairajpuri & A. H. Siddiqi ----- pp. 21-26 [PDF]
The genus Ascarops belonging to the family Spiruridae has been reported from a carnivore bird, Accipiter badius. This is the first record of this genus from birds. It differs from other species in the absence of a lateral flange and in having 6 pairs of pedunculated papillae. Under the family Hedruridae, two new species Excisa curvata and Viguiera terpsiphonei are reported along with the key to the species of their genera. Excisa curvata n. sp. differs from all the known species in body length, size and ratio of spicules. The presence of sessile papillae at the tip of the tail brings the species closest to E. buckleyi but there being two pairs in the former while four pairs in the latter. Viguiera terpsiphonei n. sp. comes closest to V. leiperi and V. dorsti but differs from both of them in the shape of head and in the number and arrangement of the cloacal papillae. Hadjelia sp. besed on a single male specimen is also reported from India.

- A Check list of the helminths from Japan and adjacent areas. Part I. Fish parasites reported by S. Yamaguti from Japanese waters and adjacent areas.
Sh. Kamegai & A. Ichihara ----- pp. 1-43 [PDF]
Preface: Helminthological survays in Japan were started as early as 1890 by S. Goto. During the 80 years since then many helminthologists, such as S. Yoshida, S. Ishii, Y. Ozaki, K. Morishita, T. Fukui, Y. Koyama, J. Ito, I. Sawada, J. Yamashita, S. Yamaguti, etc., have contributed to our knowledge of the helminth fauna of Japan.
Major works in our country, however, have been published by Dr. S. Yamaguti, who not only described new parasites from Japan but also reported many known species described by other Japanese scientists and foregin helminthologists as well. Dr. Yamaguti has kindly donated his collections and library to our museum. The possession of these materials prompted us to make a host-parasite check list of his published records. It is believed that the availability of such a list will aid future workers in identifying parasites collected from hosts included in the list, particularly from the geographic areas covered by Dr. Yamaguti's survey.
The present list is just the first step towards making a complete chech list in the future, including other Japanese literature on helminths.
We are indebted to Dr. T. Abe, Tokai Reg. Fish. Res. Lab. Tokyo, and to Dr. R. Arai, Nat. Sci. Mus. Ueno, Tokyo, for information on host fishes.

A. Ichihara ----- pp. 1-3 [PDF]
Musculovesicula magna n. sp. (Digenetic trematode: Hemiuridae, Lecithochiriinae) is described from the stomach of Gymnothorax kidako from the coast of Miyake Isl., Pacific, Japan, May 23, 1972. It differs from the most closely related species M. congeri Yamaguti, 1970 in sucker ratio, body size and entire pars prostatica is enclosed in the hermaphroditic pouch.
- Two new digenetic trematodes, Paramonorcheides brotulidorum n. sp. (Monorchiidae) and Dinosoma lophioimi n. sp. (Hemiuridae), from deep sea fishes from Japan.
G. Toman ----- pp. 4-7 [PDF]
A new monorchiid trematode, Paramonorcheides brotulidorum n. sp. was collected from the intestine of Neobythites fasciatus. It differs from the closest related species P. sirembonis Yamaguti, 1938, in larger body size, larger sucker ratio, shorter esphagus, more anterior location of acetabulum, more posterior location of genital pore, and smaller eggs, surraounded by a thick coating. A new hemiurid, Dinosoma lophioimi n. sp. was obtained from the stomach of Lophiomus setigerus. The largeseminal vesicle and a tubular sheath enclosing hermaphroditic duct distinguishes it from all other species of the genus.

Yamaguti and Skrjabin differ vitally regarding the assignment of Glossimetra Mehra, 1937 along with other common and uncommon genara under the subfamilies Astiomatinae Baer, 1924; Styphlotrematinae Baer, 1924 and Styphlodorinae Dollfus, 1937. Recognition of Astiomatinae by Yamaguti and not by Skrjabin, recognition of Styphlotrematinae by Skrjabin and not by Yamaguti on one hand and recognition of Styphlodorinae by both lends complication in the taxonomy. Exclusion of Neomicroderma Park, 1940 and Parallopharynx Caballero, 1946 from Astiomatinae along with a suggestion that Astiomatinae, Styphlodorinae and Plagiorchinae of the family Plagiorchidae Lühe, 1901 do not differ much in their diagnostic characters.
- Studies on "Crowding effect" on Gastrothylax crumenifer and Fischoederius elongatus, the common amphistome parasites of ruminants, observed under natural conditions.
R. S. Tandon ----- pp. 12-14 [PDF]
It has been found in the case of Gastrothylax crumenifer and Fischoederius elongatus, the two common amphistome parasites (Trematodes) from the rumen of buffalo, that crowding has a definite effect on their size, and the development of reproductive organs. When he intensity of infection, either by its own species or other parasites also, is low they attain a very large size and remain immature. On the other hand in a heavily crowded state verysmall worms become fully mature and gravid. The reproductive organs and the eggs, however, are normal in the dwarfs.
- Taxonomic position of Allopharynx Stroma, 1928, Microderma Mehra, 1931 and Glossimetra Mehra, 1937.
A. N. Gupta & P. N. Sharma ----- pp. 17-18 [PDF]
Taxonomic allocation of the genus Glossimetra Mehra, 1937 along with Allopharynx Stroma, 1928 and Microderma Mehra, 1931 are discussed. Based on phylogenetic sequential arguments it is proposed that the genera Allopharynx and Microderma be down graded to subgeneric rank under the genus Glossimetra.
- Zoogonid trematodes from marine fishes near the Tsushima Island in the Sea of Japan.
Sh. Kamegai ----- pp. 19-23 [PDF]
Zoogonid trematodes collected in 1968 and 1969 are reported from marine fishes obtained near the Tsushima Islands in the Sea of Japan. Zoogonoides yamagutii n. sp. from the intestine of Plotosus anguillaris differs from the closely related species Z. acanthogobii Yamaguti, 1938 in having a larger sucker ratio and smaller eggs. Proctophantastes infundibulum n. sp. from the small intestine of Priacanthus boops is characterized by the funnel-shaped oral sucker and the esophagus being divided into two portions (esophagus proper and pseudoesophagus). Besides these two new species, Zoogonus sp. from Chrysophrys major and Deretrema nahaense Yamaguti, 1942 from Sebastodes inermis and Scorpaenopsis cirrhosa are reported.

Z. Ono & N. Takada ----- pp. 28-31 [PDF]
Having examined 610 specimens of fleas collected at 39 localities in northern Honshu the writers have found 9 species and 3 subspecies, of which three, Hystrichopsylla ozeana, Rhadinopsylla ohnoi and Monopsylla indages lis, are new to northern Honshu.
- A Check list of the helminths from Japan and adjacent areas. Part II. Parasites of amphibia, reptiles, birds and mammals reported by S. Yamaguti.
Sh. Kamegai & A. Ichihara ----- pp. 33-64 [PDF]
Preface: The present list is the second part of the series of check list of helminths from Japan and adjacent areas. It includes helminths of amphibia, reptiles, birds and mammals reported by S. Yamaguti (1933-1961). In the first part of the check list published in 1972, fish parasites alone reported bby the same author have been dealt with. In these two parts, all the helminths reported by Yamaguti from Japan and adjacent areas have been thoroughly listed up from his entire original papers. It is believed that the availability of such a list will aid future workers in identyfying parasites collected from hosts included in the list, particularly from the geographic areas covered by Yamaguti's surveys.
Supplemental check list series on helminths of fishes from Japan including all the up to date literratures besides Yamaguti will be published in the future.
We are indebted to Dr. Y. Imaizumi, Nat. Sci. Mus. Ueno, Tokyo and to Dr. Y. Hasuo, Yamashina Inst. Ornith., Tokyo, for information on host animals.

- Ovarionematobothrium saba n. sp. (Didymozoidae), a new trematode parasite of the ovary of a marine fish, Pneumatophorus japonicus, from Japan.
Sh. Kamegai & T. Shimazu ----- pp. 35-38 [PDF]
Ovarionematobothrium saba n. sp. (Trematoda: Didymozoidae) is described from the ovary of a marine fish, Pneumatophorus japonicus, caught off the Pacific coast of central Japan. This species is the second in the genus and is distinguished from the type and only other species in the genus, O. texomense (McIntosh et Self, 1955) Yamaguti, 1971 by having a much shorter body, strongly winding female genital organs (ovary, vitellaria and uterus) smaller eggs, by lacking the acetabulum, and by parasitizing a marine teleost.
- Morphological study of setaria javensis Vevers, 1922 (Filarioidea: Nematoda) recovered from Tragulus kanchil.
J. Araki, C. Shoho, H. Kamiya & N. Ohtaishi ----- pp. 39-44 [PDF]
Setaria worms recovered from mouse-deer, Tragulus species, was studied by the light and scanning electron microscope (SEM). The characteristic morphlogical feature of this species could be illustrated more clearly by the SEM pictures. In this study the bosses were observed on the cuticle and the post-deirid was detected also in the female as in the male worm. Fine cuticular appearance and deirids as well as post deirids are well visualized in the SEM picture.
