Order Scuticociliatida (ref. ID; 7040)

[ref. ID; 2014]
Small (20-30 um diameter) discoid ciliate, flattened dorso-ventrally. Apical pole rounded, terminal pole slightly truncate. Oral aperture displaced to the lower right quadrant of the ventral surface. The position and angle of the membranelles appear to be rather variable, but the undulating membrane extends around complete right edge of the aperture. Somatic ciliation comparatively sparse, usually in about 20 rows, arising from paired kinetosomes. The somatic kineties are horseshoe-shaped, centered around the oral aperture and in some cases are borne upon distinctive ridges which give the edges of the cell a crenulated appearance. There are several caudal cilia present. Contractile vacuole sub-terminal. Spherical macronucleus centrally located with an adjacent micronucleus.
