Chemical procedures remove some of the outer 3 limiting membranes of 2 ciliate protozoa, Euplotes eurystomus and Tetrahymena pyriformis, and reveal sheets of microtubules in their ectoplasm for SEM study. This greatly enhances the analysis of the 3-dimensional geometry of these sheets, as is shown especially for E. eurystomus. In this organism, sheets of microtubules can readily be observed and described as they course through or around parts of th oral apparatus and other 3-dimensionally complex regions.
