Euglena oxyuris is a relatively large Euglenoid, measuring 140 to 150 microns. I have never seen one swimming. In every sample I have found them in they are still, but appear to be otherwise healthy.

They seem to be incapable of metaboly, and don't generate a lot of forward movement with that single flagellum. The stiffness is typical of the genus Lepocinclis, to which this species has been moved.Olympusman wrote:I have never seen one swimming.
