Abstract
    The orthonectid Ciliocincta sabellariae, which parasitizes Sabellaria cementarium (Annelida: Polychaeta), creates extensive "galleries" in the epidermis of its host. The matrix ("plasmodium"), occupied by germinal cells, embryos, males, and females, consists of epidermal cytoplasm that has been greatly modified as a result of parasitism. Stages in the differentiation of cysts of a microsporan (microsporidian) are often found in the matrices and also in orthonectid embryos.
