Morphology and phylogenetic analysis of two oxytrichid soil ciliates from China, Oxytricha paragranulifera n. sp. and Oxytricha granulifera Foissner and Adam, 1983 (Protista, Ciliophora, Hypotrichia).
TLDR
Phylogenetic analyses based on SSU rRNA gene sequence data suggest a close relationship within the Oxytrichidae assemblage between O. paragranulifera n. Expand
Morphogenesis and Molecular Phylogeny of a New Freshwater Ciliate, Notohymena apoaustralis n. sp. (Ciliophora, Oxytrichidae)
TLDR
Phylogenetic analyses based on small subunit rDNA sequence data suggest a sister relationship between N. apoaustralis n. Expand
A Molecular Phylogenetic Investigation of Bakuella, Anteholosticha, and Caudiholosticha (Protista, Ciliophora, Hypotrichia) Based on Three‐Gene Sequences
TLDR
All three genera should be regarded as the members of the order Urostyloida within the subclass Hypotrichia, as indicated by morphological characters and Bakuella has a closer relationship with U Frostyla than with bakuellids (e.g. Apobakuella and Metaurostylopsis), suggesting Bakueella may belong to the family Urostelidae rather than the family Bakuellidae.

Morphology, Cell Division, and Phylogeny of Uroleptus longicaudatus (Ciliophora, Hypotricha), a Species of the Uroleptus limnetis Complex
TLDR
It is proposed to subsume U. longicaudatus and few other little‐known species, which are not clearly distinguishable at the present state of knowledge, as U. limnetis complex, because of the lack of detailed morphological data of the populations sequenced so far. Expand
Morphogenesis of a unique pseudourostylid ciliate, Trichototaxis songi (Ciliophora, Urostylida).
TLDR
It is posit that Trichototaxis is an intermediate form between the Pseudourostylidae and Pseudokeronopsidae as it shares morphogenetic features with both. Expand
Taxonomy and phylogeny of two species of the genus Deviata (Protista, Ciliophora) from China, with description of a new soil form, Deviata parabacilliformis sp. nov.
TLDR
Molecular phylogenetic analysis suggests that Deviata is not monophyletic, and its position is poorly resolved due to weak phylogenetic signal of the 18S marker in the Stichotrichida. Expand
Comparative Mitochondrial Analysis of Cnaphalocrocis exigua (Lepidoptera: Crambidae) and Its Close Relative C. medinalis
TLDR
Although phylogenetic analysis based on the mitogenomic data strongly supported the close relationship between these two species, many differences were still being revealed and protein coding genes, especially the atp8 genes, had quite different evolutionary rates. Expand
