Answer to Case 404

Answer: Hymenolepis nana egg

As pointed out by Sheldon, BW, and Anon, this is a beautiful example of an H. nana egg, with refractile internal hooklets and 2 clearly visible polar thickenings. The arrows on the image below point out the polar thickening from which the polar filaments arise.

Thanks again for Florida Fan for donating this great case!
