Coleps
plates

Coleps (coal-eps) - the pirranha or hyaena of the ciliate world. Eats detritus but definitely has a penchant for bits of animals - and is not squeamish about attacking living but damaged organisms. Shed exoskeletons of crustacea are attacked, the Coleps then gnaws on the tissue (and is thus referred to as histophagous). Distinguished by having calcareous plates around the outside of the body, shown here dissociated from a cell that was killed by compression. Differential interference contrast.   This picture was taken by David Patterson and Mark Farmer of material from freshwater sites in the vicinity of the University of Georgia in Athens, Georgia, USA) in April, 2001 and from collections of organisms maintained at the University.
