Scanning electron micrograph of P. olseni zoospore (a) and tinsel (mastigonemes, M) (b). A zoospore with the anterior flagellum (AF) and posterior flagellum (PF). The flagellum is rooted in the zoospore body (ZB). The flagellum is divided into two parts; the basal portion (BP) and an apical portion (AP). Unilateral array of tinsels on the anterior flagellum (M). Scale bar = 2 μm (a), Scale bar = 1 μm (b)
