The ciliate class Colpodea provides a powerful case in which a molecular genealogy can be compared to a detailed morphological taxonomy of a microbial group. Previous analyses of the class using the small-subunit rDNA are based on sparse taxon sampling, and are therefore of limited use in comparisons with morphologically-based classifications. Taxon sampling is increased here to include all orders within the class, and more species within previously sampled orders and in the species rich genus… CONTINUE READING
