    • Abstract

       

      Coelomocytes and haemocytes of 5 local species of earthworms were studied. The structure of different cells is the same in different species. The total and differential account of the haemocytes showed some species specificity.Perionyx excavatus, a species that can be adapted to a wide range of temperature, on acclimation to 8° C cold, did not show any significant change in the total count of cells, but did show some changes in the density of different stages of eleocytes.
