Fig. 13. A transverse section through the postnuclear region of an advanced spermatid

Showing in the center of the figure a cross-section of the tail flagellum surrounded by a pair of membranes. The larger ring in the spermatid cytoplasm is the so called caudal sheath or manchette. This is not a continuous membrane, as often described, but a cylindrical aggregation of delicate filaments. X 29,506. When examined at very high magnification these appear to be tubular. (See inset A.) X 65,000.
