Crithidia fasciculata Léger, Trypanosoma equiperdum Doflein, and T. lewisi Kent were examined by thin section, freeze-etch, and cytochemical techniques. These kinetoplastid flagellates possess matching structural specializations of the flagellar and pellicular membranes that appear to represent discrete attachment sites. The intracellular sites differ structurally from metazoan intercellular junctions and also differ among the species studied.
