Stylonychia Video No. 3

T1/DSL/Cable Stream

This genus belongs to the ciliate order Hypotrichida whose species are characterized by rows of fused cilia called cirri on the ventral surface. Stylonychia uses its cirri to "walk" across a surface as well as for swimming. It is a common inhabitant of ponds, living in shoreline films where it preys on smaller organisms.
