An electron microscopical study of the cytoskeletal components of Triton X-100-treated cells of Frontonia depressa revealed structural continuity between different microfibrillar nets. The filaments are Y-shaped, well-developed in the macronucleus, appear to run the same pattern as far as the cytoplasm, and connect with the infraciliary lattice as well as with the epiplasm. By a tenuous microfibrillar net, there appears to be continuity between the macronucleus and the nematodesmata. In the oral skeleton, there is continuity between the left and the right side by way of several microfibrillar nets. On the left side, the deep microfibrillar net connects with the epiplasm by means of the striated microfibrillar bundles. On the right side, the nematodesmata connect the deep microfibrillar net with the macronucleus.
