Figure 1: Scanning electron micrographs of tegument, oral sucker, and posterior sucker of untreated Cotylophoron cotylophorum and those treated with aqueous extract of pods of Acacia concinna (0.5 mg/mL) after 8 h exposure. (a) Untreated fluke showing smooth tegument (t) (Bar-100 μm). (b) aqueous extract of pods of Acacia concinna-treated showing ruptured tegument (arrowheads) and blebs (arrows) (Bar-100 μm). (c) Untreated fluke showing mouth (m) and sensory papillae (sp) (Bar-20 μm). (d) aqueous extract of pods of Acacia concinna-treated showing rupture of blebs (arrows) near the oral sucker (os) region (Bar-25 μm). (e) Untreated fluke showing posterior sucker (ps) (Bar-35 μm). (f) aqueous extract of pods of Acacia concinna-treated showing rough tegument (rt) and blebs (arrows) in the posterior sucker × (Bar-35 μm)
