Amastigote

An amastigote is a protist cell that does not have visible external flagella or cilia. The term is used mainly to describe a certain phase in the life-cycle of trypanosomes. It is also called the leishmanial stage, since in Leishmania it is the form the parasite takes in the vertebrate host, but occurs in all trypanosome genera.
