Choanoflagellate lorica construction and assembly: the nudiform condition. I. Savillea species.

Abstract

The lorica of Savillea spp. (Choanoflagellida) comprises a two layered arrangement of siliceous costae, the inner layer consists of helical costae and the outer layer longitudinal. In Savillea micropora, the helical costae, in a left-handed conformation, undergo 1.5 turns and extend from a short distance above the base of the lorica to the anterior opening… (More)
