Colpodella
portrait

Colpodella (col-poe-dell-a), this is the only genus of apicomplexa (the group that includes the causative agent of malaria) which is not a parasite. Rather it is a free-swimming flagellate which attacks other protists using the anterior beak or rostrum. This attaches to the prey and sucks cytoplasm from the prey. With two flagella. 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).
