Abstract Lagenophrys dennisi, a peritrich ciliate, was observed attached to the exoskeleton of the crayfish Cambarellus patzcuarensis in Lake Pátzcuaro, Michoacán, Mexico. Lagenophrys dennisi presents a hemispheroidal, suboval or oval lorica in dorsal view, the distinctive lorica aperture consists of a pair of lips highly arched, unthickened, and smooth. Comparison of morphometric characters of the ciliate with previous records is made. Structures such as a “V”-shaped lorica suture, collar… 

Finding of Pebrilla paguri (Ciliata, Folliculinidae, Heterotricha) epibiont inside the shells of two hermit crab species, Calcinus tubularis and Clibanarius erythropus (Decapoda, Anomura, Diogenidae)

The present research showed that P. paguri is not an exclusive hermit crab epibiont: it also attaches itself to shells, and particularly to the three largest whorls, corresponding to the portion occupied by the crab body.

First record of Conidophrys pilisuctor (Ciliophora:Pilisuctorida) as ectosymbiont of Hyalella azteca from Mexico

The pilisuctorid ciliate Conidophrys pilis conductor is recorded for the first time as ectosymbiont of the freshwater amphipod Hyalella azteca collected in Patzcuaro Lake, Michoacan, Mexico and it is shown that there was not a homogeneous ciliate preference for the body regions of H. aztca.

Morphological Characterization and Intraspecific Variation of Zoothamnium intermedium Precht, 1935 (Ciliophora, Peritrichia) Attached to Calanoid Copepods in the Chesapeake Bay, USA

ABSTRACT. A redescription of Zoothamnium intermedium Precht, 1935, a peritrich epibiont on copepods, is provided using specimens colonizing Acartia tonsa and Eurytemora affinis in Chesapeake Bay,

DISTRIBUTION AND PREVALENCE OF 15 SPECIES OF EPIBIONT PERITRICH CILIATES ON THE CRAYFISH CAMBARELLUS

The results showed that the gills had no similarity with respect to the other body parts as regards peritrich attachment, and the pereiopods and the uropods were the body parts with the highest species richness, the gill had the lowest.

Attachment of the peritrich epibiont Zoothamnium intermedium Precht, 1935 (Ciliophora, Peritrichia) to artificial substrates in a natural environment.

Results suggest that Z. intermedium is an obligate epibiont, which means that it is able to colonize artificial substrates in the field and not in the laboratory, as previously demonstrated.

Epibiotic relationship between two species of suctorians (Protozoa: Suctoria) and Corisella edulis (Heteroptera: Corixidae)

This work analyzes the relationship between the architecture of the middle legs and the prevalence of ciliates and presents data for their distribution, prevalence, mean abundance, intensity and density on host appendages.

An annotated checklist of species in the family Lagenophryidae (Ciliophora, Oligohymenophorea, Peritrichia), With a brief review of their taxonomy, morphology, and biogeography.

An annotated checklist of all known species and a brief review of the family Lagenophryids, including data of their geographic distribution and their hosts are provided.

Telotroch formation, survival, and attachment in the epibiotic peritrich Zoothamnium intermedium (Ciliophora, Oligohymenophorea)

Investigation of the life cycle of the peritrich ciliate Zoothamnium intermedium found that colonization success in nature may strongly depend on the ability to find a suitable host in a short period of time, and attachment success decreased with telotroch age.

Pebrilla paguri (Ciliophora, Folliculinidae) on four Mediterranean hermit crab species

Analysis of various Mediterranean hermit crab species aimed at broadening the range of possible Pebrilla paguri hosts, as well as at investigating their preferential distribution on the crustacean body, finds the highest frequency of P. paguri was observed on the abdomen, telson, and uropods.

New Species of Lagenophrys (Ciliophora, Peritrichia) from New Zealand and Australia 1

The new species has the hemispheroidal lorica most common among members of its genus and is distinguished by its possession of large tubercles on the thickened edge of the anterior lip of the lorICA aperture, a deep cleft in the left side of the lip's edge, and a ovoid to reniform macronucleus located in the right‐hand part of the body.
