Vaginicola?

Post by Ecki »

Hello, as peritrichous ciliates are currently "en vogue" I would like to join the party with this nice ciliate ;)

No valve that I could see, no stalk at the end of the lorica and the ciliate is attached directly to the lorica. I think this is Vaginicola but I have next to none experience with ciliates.

Regards
Eckhard
