ciliate ID

Post by Litonotus »

I found it yesterday - big ciliate (flattened a bit too much here), when swimming it was moving like a drill.

It's a lovely image. :) I wish I could say more. I find it hard to interpret the features of the mouth (especially important since, as you say, this guy is somewhat squashed). Seeing more images might help, if they show sections at different focal planes...at the moment, it's hard to say more than "ciliate."

Perhaps someone else will recognize this as an "old friend."

it was very qiuck, so I had to wait until lack of water slows it... it had a fat 'sausage' shape.

So...a long Hymenostome, with a contractile vacuole, on one side near the mouth, which is slightly oblique. It's hard to see the structure of the adorals. Glaucoma comes to mind...there are elongate species (G. sagitta, G. frontata). But no doubt there are other long Hymenostomatia that would be a better match (Deltopylum? Stegochilum? ).

I think that's the best I can do, since I can't really interpret the structure of the membranes around the mouth. I hope someone else knows more.
