Abstract
    The contractile system of the female Intoshia variabili (Orthonectida) was studied using rhodamine-phalloidin staining. The contractile fibres are true muscles. The muscle system consists of eight-twelve circular fibres, restricted to the anterior third of the body, and six-eight longitudinal fibres. The circular fibres are positioned beneath the longitudinal ones. The pattern of the musculature determines the bilateral body plan.
