Chaetospira the ciliate on tubes house

Post by carlos.uruguay »

In this video we look at a curious freshwater ciliate
found in the 'Cañada Bentancor', 1 km at west of the km 98 of Route 3, Department of San José - Uruguay - South America
Chaetospira lives in a long gelatinous tube.
Very similar to Stichotricha, Chaetospira is distinguished among other things because your home is more "coarse" and hover your lorica curved like a corkscrew.
