Bodo caudatus
portrait

Bodo caudatus (beau-dough), bodonids are common and widespread in many habitats. In the olden days (more than 20 years ago) any small heterotrophic flagellate was referred to as a bodonid - such was the state of ignorance. This species glides along the ground, picking up individual bacteria with the mouth - located in the slightly prominent region to the left of the point of flagellar insertion. The anterior flagellum can be seen to insert into a small subapical depression. Phase contrast.  This picture was taken by David Patterson, Linda Amaral Zettler and Virginia Edgcomb of material from the salt marsh at Little Sippewissett (Massachusetts, USA) in Autumn, 2000 and in Spring and summer, 2001. Image copyright: D. J. Patterson, L. Amaral-Zettler and V. Edgcomb, image used under license to MBL (micro*scope).
