Furthermore, altered axonemal structure was frequently observed.
Axonemal alterations included missing of some of the peripheral and more commonly the central microtubules.
On the other hand, Hancock and de Krester (1992) found that a reduction of axonemal components caused lowered motility.

As a consequence of the unusual position of the axonemal basis close to the acrosomal vacuole, the main part of the nucleus is represented by the so-called postcentriolar elongation of the nucleus.

In the present study, we investigated the spermatozoa of several different linyphiid spiders from the subfamilies Linyphiinae (Linyphiini and Micronetini) and Erigoninae to begin a determination of the generality of this peculiar axonemal pattern within the Linyphiidae.
