Five species of the loricate genus Lagenophrys were found on freshwater hosts and are described for the first time. Lagenophrys dennisi n. sp., L. incompta n. sp., and L. oregonensis n. sp. are ectosymbionts of astacid crayfish. Lagenophrys foxi n. sp and L. missouriensis n. sp. are ectosymbionts of gammarid amphipods. All five species appear to occur only m North America. Protargol preparations of the five species reveal that the peristomial myoneme is much broader and more extensive in… Expand
New Species of Lagenophrys (Ciliophora, Peritrichia) from New Zealand and Australia 1
TLDR
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.

TLDR
Ten species of lagenophryid peritrichs in three genera are redescribed or described for the first time and appear to have evolved separately and convergently from ancestors within Operculigera. Expand
Redescription of four species of lagenophryid peritrichs (Ciliophora) from Australia and New Guinea, with descriptions of two new species
TLDR
Four insufficiently described species of ectosymbiotic peritrich ciliates that occur on crustacean hosts in Australia and New Guinea are redescribed and appear to comprise a morphologically distinct group within the genus Operculigera. Expand
Morphology and molecular analyses of four epibiotic peritrichs on crustacean and polychaete hosts, including descriptions of two new species (Ciliophora, Peritrichia).
TLDR
Four epibiotic sessilid peritrichs were isolated from one syllid polychaete and three crustacean hosts in Qingdao, China and Phylogenetic analyses reveal that R. commensalis is closely related to the family Astylozoidae rather than to the morphologically similar Epistylididae. Expand
First Record of Lagenophrys dennisi (Ciliophora: Peritrichia) on the Exoskeleton of Crayfish Cambarellus patzcuarensis
TLDR
Lagenophrys dennisi, a peritrich ciliate, was observed attached to the exoskeleton of the crayfish Cambarellus patzcuarensis in Lake Pátzcuaro, Michoacán, Mexico and is the first record of its presence in Mexico. Expand
An annotated checklist of species in the family Lagenophryidae (Ciliophora, Oligohymenophorea, Peritrichia), With a brief review of their taxonomy, morphology, and biogeography.
TLDR
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. Expand
Epibiotic relationship between two species of suctorians (Protozoa: Suctoria) and Corisella edulis (Heteroptera: Corixidae)
TLDR
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. Expand
Evolution of Variations in the Common Pattern of Stomatogenesis in Peritrich Ciliates: Evidence from a Comparative Study Including a New Description of Stomatogenesis in Pseudepistylis songi Peng et al.,
TLDR
It is found that P. songi and other peritrichs have the same general type of ophryobuccokinetal stomatogenesis, with the parental oral complex being inherited by one daughter and the new oral complex by the other daughter; however, some differences between individual taxa appear to have arisen in the course of evolution.

Track analysis and geographic distribution of some Lagenophrys Stein, 1852 (Protozoa: Ciliophora: Peritrichia) species
TLDR
The distributions of the Lagenophrys species show complex patterns that could be related to trophic opportunities, habitat and distribution of hosts, and other factors, and suggest that a number of allopatric events have caused regionalization of the taxa. Expand
Ciliate parasites and related diseases of crustacea: A review
TLDR
The phylum Ciliophora is composed of a large number of organisms characterized by the possession of two key features: nuclear dualism and an infraciliature, which have resulted in a taxon composed of organisms with extreme morphological diversity. Expand

Ultrastructural and Protargol Studies of Lagenophrys callinectes (Ciliophora: Peritrichida)*
TLDR
Ulastructural and protargol studies reveal that the trophont of Lagenophrys callinectes, though highly specialized, generally conforms to the basic peritrich structural pattern, with Ms. nassa suggesting that the patterns of infundibular structure should be useful in future taxonomic studies of Lganophrys species.

TLDR
Ulastructural studies of the trophont of the epizooic loricate peritrich, Circolagenophrys ampulla, show that the body conforms to the basic peritRich pattern and the relationship between telotroch formation and the molting behavior of the crustacean host are discussed. Expand
