Examine a bit of sarcode under the microscope; note the spicules.
Ectoplasm, ek′to-plasm, n. the exterior protoplasm or sarcode of a cell.
Their cavity is wide and simple, and filled up by jelly (not by sarcode, as I supposed in my first description).
Some have only one, others have several openings, through which the sarcode flows.
The sarcode of all these deep-sea Rhizopods has many large black-brown pigment-cells.
The fiber of sarcode, to which the constricted part has by tension been reduced, now snaps, and two organisms go free.
Usually the sarcode, issuing from the openings of the capsule, forms a stronger cylinder, with peculiar movements.
Sometimes used synonymously for the "sarcode" of the Protozoa.
