The neck of this predatory ciliate moves back and forth searching for food. The mouth is located at the base of the neck.
It is similarly shaped, but larger than the commonly found litonotus. Also somewhat similar in appearance to lacrymaria, but not as "elastic" and slower moving.

Charlie, I've run out of different ways to say "awesome". The clarity, detail, and cleanliness of your images sets a phenomenal standard for the rest of us to aspire toward. Applause

I'm always curious about scale and illumination. I'm guessing that this is COL with a few hundred microns across the frame, but some of your recent DIC images look a lot like this too. Can you clue me in?

Thanks much,
--Rik

Charlie, great image, wonderful detail, absolut stunning. Very clear mouth part.
I think it is D. margaritifer, due to the many macronucleus parts distributed in the body.
Thanks for posting it,
Gerd
