Intraspecific Genetic Variation in Paramecium Revealed by Mitochondrial Cytochrome c Oxidase I Sequences
This is the first report of intraspecific variation in free‐living protozoans based on mitochondrial sequence data, and the results show that the high variation in mitochondrial DNA makes it a suitable marker for intrapecific and population genetic studies.

Morphological and molecular investigations of Paramecium schewiakoffi sp. nov. (Ciliophora, Oligohymenophorea) and current status of distribution and taxonomy of Paramecium spp.
Revised Systematics of Holospora-Like Bacteria and Characterization of “Candidatus Gortzia infectiva”, a Novel Macronuclear Symbiont of Paramecium jenningsi
A novel Holospora-like bacterium (HLB) living in the macronuclei of a Paramecium jenningsi population is characterized and a possible pattern of evolution for some of their features is shown.
Holospora species infecting the nuclei of Paramecium appear to belong into two groups of bacteria
Focusing on genera to improve species identification: revised systematics of the ciliate Spirostomum.
Phylogenetic Relationships of the Subclass Peniculia (Oligohymenophorea, Ciliophora) Inferred from Small Subunit rRNA Gene Sequences
It is concluded that the Subclass Peniculia should be divided into two orders, the Order Urocentrida and Order Peniculida, with the latter order having two suborders, the Suborder Frontoniina and PenicULina.
Phylogenetic relationships of the genus Paramecium inferred from small subunit rRNA gene sequences.
The genus Paramecium includes species that are well known and very common in freshwater environments and are closely related and strongly supported as a monophyletic group.
