Abstract

Two layers of atypical striated muscle were found to be present in the intestine of the larvae of Drosophila melanogaster, an inner circular and an outer longitudinal. The muscles are in the form of a lattice of ribbon-like fibers, each composed of a single myofibril and other typical organelles. The ultrastructure of the striated myofibrils, described here, has some features similar to those normally seen in smooth muscle.
