Electron microphotographs are presented of trophozoites of Plasmodium berghei migrating from parasitized rat erythrocytes. The structure of the merozoite (young trophozoite) is compared with that of the maturing trophozoite containing pigment and forming rings. The significance of trophozoite migration, regarding the extracellular viability and infectivity of the trophozoite form, remains to be investigated.
