Identification key

Bdelloidea
Body cylindrical, highly contractile, and telescopic. Free-swimming or with leech-like creeping movement. A dorsal proboscis present. Toes, when present, usually retracted within foot except when creeping. Two nonretractile spurs usually present. Mastax ramate. Males absent. Reproduction entirely by parthenogenesis; oviparity or viviparity . Each ovary with a vitellarium.
