Euplotes
twins

Euplotes (you-ploe-tees) is a hypotrich ciliate. There is an adoral zone of membranelles leading from the front of the cell to the mouth (where food vacuoles are formed) on the ventral side of the body. Membranelles are paddles formed by clusters of cilia which adhere to each other (at this size, water is viscous and acts like a glue holding cilia together). Hypotrichs use clumps of cilia called cirri to move. The two images (of the same cell) are taken at slightly different focal levels. Phase contrast microscopy.  This image was taken by Dawn Moran and David Patterson from cultures and samples collected from the Ross Sea in Antarctica by Rebecca Gast. Image copyright: Dawn Moran and D. J. Patterson, image used under license to MBL (micro*scope).
