Figure 2: Scanning electron micrographs of R. echinobothrida treated with 20 mg ml-1 of the methanol extract of A. caesia stem bark. A. The scolex greatly distorted and the tegument contracted (bar = 15 μm). B. A sucker deformed with some vesicular secretion inside (bar = 2 μm). C. The horny spines completely sloughed off from the rim of the sucker (bar = 20 μm). D. Microtriches reduced to mere adhering dishevelled clumps of tissue on the tegument (bar = 2 μm)
