Codosiga
portrait

Codosiga, a collar flagellate. This genus includes solitary and colonial forms. Here we see several colonies of cells forming tight aggregates at the end of a long stiff stalk. Each cell has a single apical flagellum surrounded by a collar of fine pseudopodia. The collar captures food swept against it by the action of the flagella. Phase contrast.  This image was obtained by Feng Weisong, Gu Xiwen, Yang Jun and Miao Wei (of the Institute of Hydrobiology of the Chinese Academy of Sciences) and David Patterson in the summer of 2002.
