Cercomonas
portrait

Cercomonas (sir-ko-moan-ass), gliding flagellates, two flagella insert just below the anterior apex of the cell. The anterior flagellum beats floppily, the posterior flagellum trails against the substrate. Body very flexible and elements may be drawn out as strands behind the moving cells. Common. Lots of species, but the taxonomy is very unstable. This is a compressed cell surrounded by some bacteria. The light circle with the dark centre is the nucleus with central nucleolus, and the very light region is the contractile vacuole. Phase contrast.  This picture was taken by David Patterson, Linda Amaral Zettler, Mike Peglar and Tom Nerad from cultures and other materials maintained at the American Type Culture Collection during 2001. Image copyright: D. J. Patterson, L Amaral-Zettler, M. Peglar and T. Nerad, image used under license to MBL (micro*scope).
