Ductus Epididymis, Higher magnification, Dog
Description:Here you can make out the seterocilia. However, it may be difficult to tell exactly what these structures are made up off.

These are actually long microvilli which increase greatly the surface area of the columnar cells. H&E. Ductus epididymis. Male Reproductive System. Dog.
