	Is this a quiz ?  Off the top of my head..... flagellar bundle 
(several folded strands of flagellum running longitudinally and 
bisecting the cyst), parabasal bodies (2, comma-shaped features oriented 
transverse to the flagella, nuclei (either 4 or 2, usually, depending
on the developmental stage of the cyst).  Some say an axoneme is visable 
but I've never seen it.
