Bursaria
portrait

Bursaria (brr-say-ree-a) is a large colpodid ciliate, which usually feeds on planktonic algae and similar organisms. It is organized a bit like a scoop, with a wide oral opening at the front end, and the cavity leading to the cytostome is lined with blocks of cilia. Dark ground illumination.  This image was taken by Dave Remsen and D. J. Patterson from samples from a rainwater barrel in a garden in Woods Hole (Massachusetts, USA).
