Strombidium
AZM

Strombidium (stom-bid-ee-um) is one of the oligotrich ciliates. Traditionally grouped with the more widely reported tintinnids, but unlike tintinnids, these cells are naked and have no internal skeletal elements. There is a spiral Adoral Zone of Membranelles around the anterior of the cell and these are used to collect bacteria, algae and other small particles as food. Free-swimming. Common. Phase contrast.  This picture was taken by David Patterson of material from Limulus-ridden sediments at Plum Island (Massachusetts USA) in spring and summer, 2001. Image copyright: D. J. Patterson, image used under license to MBL (micro*scope).
