A cryosection of a Schistosoma mansoni daughter sporocyst within a snail intermediate host, six weeks post-infection. The section is stained with: phalloidin (magenta) to show the musculature in both the snail and schistosome; POPO-1 (blue) to label germinal cells in the sporocyst; and lectin PSA (green) to reveal secretory glands within the developing parasite embryo. The image is a maximum intensity projection of confocal sections.
