Zusammenfassung: 
1. The effects of the commonly used insecticides E605f (parathion), Ripcord 10 (cypermethrin) and the fungicide DuPont Benomyl on chloragocytes of an enchytraeid species were studied by transmission electron microscopy. 2. Animals were exposed to concentrations varying between 0.1 x and 100 x the minimum concentration recommended for agricultural application. 3. Ultrastructural changes regarding nuclei, mitochondria and other cytoplasmic compartments were obvious and were correlated to concentration and exposition time of the pesticides. 4. The importance of ultrahistopathology for terrestrial bioassays and monitoring is discussed.
