Figure 3: Photomicrographs of the gastrodermis, testis, ovary, and egg 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 lumen lined by columnar epithelium (gastrodermis, gd) and rests upon basement membrane (bm) ×120. (b) aqueous extract of pods of Acacia concinna-treated showing lesions in the gastrodermis (arrows) ×120. (c) Untreated fluke showing testis (tst) with germinal epithelium (ge) (arrow) ×120. (d) aqueous extract of pods of Acacia concinna-treated showing vacuoles (v) and disruption of germinal epithelium (arrow) ×120. (e) Untreated fluke showing intact ovary (ov) lined with germinal epithelium (ge) (arrow) ×100. (f) aqueous extract of pods of Acacia concinna-treated showing vacuole (v) due to destruction of germ cells × 100. (g) Untreated fluke showing intact eggs (e) ×60. (h) aqueous extract of pods of Acacia concinna-treated showing atypical egg with destruction of yolk cells (arrows) ×60
