..., the SMR and CMP fibers of both paralarvae and adults exhibited the myofilament arrangements typical of obliquely striated muscle cells but the angle of obliquity of the dense bodies was 22.8±2.4 deg. and 4.6±0.87 deg. for paralarvae and adults, respectively. There were also differences in the distribution...
