Caption: Euglena gracilis cell pellicle (light green) and internal cytoplasmic organelles: chloroplasts (green), golgi apparatus (blue), mitochondria (purple), lipid bodies (dark orange), pyrenoid bodies (light yellow), ribosomes (brown), gullet (light orange), flagellum (light pink in gullet). Euglena gracilis is a fresh water flagellated green alga / protozoan often classified in a group called euglenoids. Euglena spp. normally contain chloroplasts but in prolonged darkness they become heterotrophic and engulf other small organisms.
