Description of specimen
The middle cell displays a slightly shrunken inner body where the inner wall is no longer adpressed to the inner surface of the outer cell wall but has retreated a few microns. Note that the inner cell wall is still adpressed to the outer cell wall at the termini. The lack of a strong transparency difference between parts of the cell showing the inner and outer walls indicates that the inner body has a thin wall.
