Hello

Ohh¡¡ the first ciliate is very rare ¡

Beautiful photographies. Do I believe that the second photo is, in effect, Euplotes (patella??); but I do not know the first ciliate :roll:

Hi Abel,

Thank you,

But the second are you sure that is a Euplotes, I send some others of this one.

Hello Jean Marc.


Observing it now, in effect, this ciliate can be stylonychia pustulata but I have doubts with euplotes

Can't say for sure but the last two images I think, are Oxytricha and in the process of binary fission. :)

Jean-marc,

I've only seen the first subject here a few times myself. Best picture I've seen of this species.
