Figure 2: Photomicrographs of the tegument, posterior sucker and parenchyma 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), followed by subtegumental layer (st) ×140. (b) aqueous extract of pods of Acacia concinna-treated showing detachment of the tegumental layer (arrows) and exposing subtegumental (st) region ×160. (c) Untreated fluke showing posterior sucker (ps) with strongly developed musculature ×180. (d) aqueous extract of pods of Acacia concinna-treated showing appearance of bleb (arrow) in the tegument of posterior sucker region ×180. (e) Untreated fluke showing intact parenchyma (p) ×170. (f) aqueous extract of pods of Acacia concinna-treated showing intense vacuolization (v) in the parenchyma ×170
