Downloaded 31 times
Description Video starts with whole-body (anterior to the right) external feature rendering viewed dorsally, laterally, and then ventrally, followed by whole-body internal feature rendering viewed dorsally, laterally, and then ventrally. Video zooms in on eyespots (green), jaws (magenta), ganglia (yellow), and gastric tissue (grey) viewed dorsally, laterally, and then ventrally. Video moves posteriorly, focusing on male median reproductive tissues (shades of blue), female median reproductive tissues (pink), and testisacs (red) viewed dorsally, laterally, and then ventrally. Video goes to the posterior focusing on intestinal tissue (pale green) viewed dorsally, laterally, and then ventrally. Video then focuses on the auricle cavities (blue), finishing on the dorsal view of whole-body internal feature.
