Taxonomy: Pseudoparasites and Artifacts
Animal: Australian bee pollen 1 18.jpg
Sites: Gut
Australian bee pollen. Can be mistaken for a Trichuris egg (unembryonated, bile stained, thick shelled egg 50-54 microns x 20-23 microns with mucoid plugs at each end) but only 45 microns long and tend to be asymetrical and lack the internal structure of the parasite egg. They are often seen in people taking the Australian bee pollen diet supplement.
