Movie S1. A free-swimming sperm of Macrostomum lignano. Note the undulating movements of the feeler and the shaft. The nucleus can be seen in the posterior half of the shaft, forming a chain-like structure.
Movie S2. ‘Probing’ behaviour of the feeler of Macrostomum lignano sperm in the female antrum. Most sperm are polarized and only their brushes can be seen (right-bottom quadrant). Some sperm are unanchored and move in the antral lumen. Note the sperm in the middle, which actively touches the antral epithelium with its feeler, the so-called ‘probing’ behaviour.
Movie S3. Sperm of Macrostomum lignano anchored in the cellular valve of the female antrum. Note the feelers radiating towards the sides of the cellular valve.
