Fig. 7

Photomicrographs of Linostomella vorticella after protargol staining. a, Ventral view of a typical individual. b–d, Photomicrographs modified with invertible function in Photoshop. b, Dorsal view of a cell, arrows mark the paroral membrane. c, Detail of the moniliform macronucleus and conspicuous oral ribs (arrows). d, Detail of oral apparatus, arrows indicate the adoral zone of membranelles, arrowheads show the paroral membrane. e, Detail of the adoral zone of membranelles, arrows denote some membranelles composed of three rows of basal bodies, one of which is very short. f, Detail of somatic kineties, arrows mark the shortened somatic kineties. g, Detail of the macronucleus and micronuclei (arrows). h, Detail of dikinetids, arrows indicate that only one basal body of each dikinetid bears a cilium. Abbreviation: Ma, macronucleus. Scale bars = 95 μm (a, b), 50 μm (c, d), 20 μm (eh)
