Frontonia
mating

Frontonia (front-own-ee-a) is a peniculine ciliate and closely related to the familiar Paramecium. Two cells seen joined at the mouth like this are mating (undergoing conjugation, a process in which haploid nuclei are exchanged between the partners). Phase contrast.,  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). Image copyright: Dave Remsen and D. J. Patterson, image used under license to MBL (micro*scope).
