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.
Comparison and redefinition of four marine, coloured Pseudokeronopsis spp. (Ciliophora: Hypotrichida), with emphasis on their living morphology
Summary. Species separation among some brightly coloured marine Pseudokeronopsis spp. is difficult because of the accumulation of inaccurate descriptions or misinterpretations in previous studies.…
Ontogeny and molecular phylogeny of a new marine ciliate genus, Heterokeronopsis g. n. (Protozoa, Ciliophora, Hypotricha), with description of a new species.
A new investigation of the marine ciliate, Trachelostyla pediculiformis (Cohn, 1866) Borror, 1972 (Ciliophora, Hypotrichida), with establishment of a new genus, Spirotrachelostyla nov. gen.
Phylogenetic Positions of Two Crytophorid Ciliates, Dysteria procera and Hartmannula derouxi (Ciliophora: Phyllopharyngea: Dysteriida) Inferred from the Complete Small Subunit Ribosomal RNA Gene…
The results revealed that some taxa of the subclass Chonotrichia had a close relationship with the subclass Phyllopharyngia, suggesting that heteromeric nuclear apparatus and the dorsal-reduced ciliature are likely phylogenetically informative.

Phylogenetic analysis based on small-subunit rRNA gene sequence data supports the monophyly of the genus Rubrioxytricha, which is nested within the non-Stylonychinae clade.

Protocruziida might be an ancestral form for the subphylum Intramacronucleata in the evolutionary line from the class Heterotrichea (subphylum Postciliodesmatophora) to higher taxa.
