Cafeteria roenbergensis
group portrait

Cafeteria (cafeteria) is probably the most abundant heterotrophic flagellate in marine ecosystems. It is a voracious bacterivore. Sessile feeding cells are D-shaped, 1.5 to 10 microns long, and laterally compressed. There is a ventral groove, and the flagella insert at the head of the groove. These cells have been disturbed, and are not feeding. The anterior flagella have the sine-wave beat pattern that is characteristic of stramenopiles. The posterior flagella are shorter. Phase contrast.  This picture was taken by David Patterson, Linda Amaral Zettler and Virginia Edgcomb of materials from sediments of the marine site, Eel Pond in Austumn 2000, spring and summer 2001.
