Reconsideration of the Phylogenetic Positions of Five Peritrich Genera, Vorticella, Pseudovorticella, Zoothamnopsis, Zoothamnium, and Epicarchesium (Ciliophora, Peritrichia, Sessilida), Based on
The molecular work demonstrates the genus Zoothamnium to be paraphyletic in relation to morphological studies, and suggests that Astylozoon, Opisthonecta, and Vorticella microstoma possibly share a SSU rRNA secondary structure in the helix E10‐1 region. Expand
New Contributions to Two Heterotrichous Ciliates, Folliculina simplex (Dons, 1917), Condylostoma curva Burkovsky, 1970 and One Licnophorid, Licnophora lyngbycola Fauré-Fremiet, 1937 (Protozoa,
The living morphology and infraciliature of two heterotrichous and one licnophorid ciliates from the north China seas were investigated using protargol impregnation and in vivo observations to provide improved diagnoses and redescriptions. Expand
Phylogeny of the families Zoothamniidae and Epistylididae (Protozoa: Ciliophora: Peritrichia) based on analyses of three rRNA-coding regions.
Intrafamilial phylogeny of some peritrichs was investigated using information from three genes, which provided more robust interpretations than single-gene analyses, and evolutionary hypotheses can be inferred. Expand
Morphology and Small Subunit (SSU) rRNA Gene Sequence of the New Brackish Water Ciliate Neobakuella flava n. g., n. sp. (Ciliophora, Spirotricha, Bakuellidae) and SSU rRNA Gene Sequences of Six
The gene sequence data indicate a close relationship with Diaxonella and a distinct separation from the bakuellid Metaurostylopsis and parabirojimid ParabiroJimia, supporting the morphological separation from Holosticha. Expand
Notes on a New Marine Peritrichous Ciliate (Ciliophora: Peritrichida), Zoothamnopsis sinica sp. n. from North China, with Reconsideration of Zoothamnium maximum Song, 1986
The morphology, infraciliature and silverline system of a new marine peritrichous ciliate, Zoothamnopsis sinica sp. n., isolated from an abalone-farming pond off the coast of Qingdao, China, areExpand
Description of two marine amphisiellid ciliates, Amphisiella milnei (Kahl, 1932) Horváth, 1950 and A. sinica sp. nov. (Ciliophora: Hypotrichia), with notes on their ontogenesis and SSU rDNA-based
The morphology and taxonomy of two marine Amphisiella species, isolated from mariculture waters in northern China, were investigated using standard techniques and molecular information indicates that both organisms belong to two separate clades and confirms that the genus Am Memphisiella might be polyphyletic.

Redefinition of the yellow hypotrichous ciliate, Pseudokeronopsis flava (Hypotrichida: Ciliophora)
The morphology and infraciliature of a population of Pseudokeronopsis flava, a yellow-coloured ciliate collected from the coastal water near Zhanjiang, South China are investigated and an improved diagnosis is supplied. Expand
Morphology and phylogeny of two Phialina species (Ciliophora, Haptoria) from northern China.
Investigation of the morphology and infraciliature of two haptorian ciliates isolated from sandy sediments of an estuary in Yantai, northern China found that P. caudata clusters with an unidentified Phialina before grouping withPhialina clampi, which form a basal clade of the family Lacrymariidae. Expand
Taxonomic Characterization of Three Marine Peritrichous Ciliates from China: Zoothamnium alrasheidi spec. nov., Z. marinum Kahl, 1933 and Z. vermicola Precht, 1935 (Ciliophora: Peritrichia)
Additional features for characterizing these species now include the structure of infundibular polykinety 3 and the number of silverlines between the aboral trochal band and (a) the scopula, and (b) the peristomial lip. Expand
