Numerical and structural variations in the giant nuclei of N. cylindratus collected from Micropterus salmoides and Esox lucius in Silver Lake (Kenosha County), Wisconsin, USA, were systematically studied. The number of nuclei (usually 17 in males and 9 in females) in the population examined was correlated with host species, season, sex and developmental stage.
