Favella
portrait

Favella (fah-vell-a) - one of the tintinnid ciliates. Tintinnids are predominantly marine ciliates and are normally located within a lorica. The shape, sculpting and attaching material are used to distinguish the different taxa. Favella has a cone-shaped lorica, without attached material, with a small degree of sculpting of the anterior end of the lorica. The cell is attached to the lorica by a strand of cytoplasm. The cilia form an anterior wreath of membranelles, and the activity of these both draws the cells forward and allows them to collect particles of food - mostly small algae. Phase contrast.  This image was taken from a sedimented sample of seawater taken near the shoreline in the region of Woods Hole, in Vineyard Sound; the collecting and photographic team included David Patterson, Linda Amaral Zettler, Mike Peglar and Tom Nerad.
