For years, systematics of three species, Urosomoida agilis (Engelmann, 1862) Hemberger in Foissner, 1982, Urosomoida longa (Gelei and Szabados, 1950) Foissner et al., 1991 and Oxytricha lanceolata Shibuya, 1930, has remained unresolved due to lack of adequate molecular data. Though, it is known since several years that the three species are not very closely related. In the present paper, 18S rRNA gene sequences for two key species, U. agilis and U. longa, and their morphology and morphometry… Expand
Morphologic and phylogenetic studies of two hypotrichous ciliates, with notes on morphogenesis in Gastrostyla steinii Engelmann, 1862 (Ciliophora, Hypotrichia).
TLDR
The division of Stylonychia into two subgenera based on morphological and morphogenetic data is supported by the phylogenetic analyses, and the first record of the small subunit ribosomal RNA (SSU rRNA) gene sequence for the species is provided. Expand
Redescription of Rigidohymena inquieta (Stokes, 1887) Berger, 2011 as Metahymena inquieta gen. nov., comb. nov. (Ciliophora, Hypotricha) Based on Morphology, Morphogenesis, and Molecular Phylogeny
TLDR
The morphology of the Korean population of R. inquieta matches the previously known populations; however, the morphogenetic pattern shows differences to the species R. candens in the involvement of cirrus V/3 in the anlagen formation. Expand
Pseudonotohymena antarctica n. g., n. sp. (Ciliophora, Hypotricha), a New Species from Antarctic Soil
TLDR
The new genus Pseudonotohy mena is morphologically similar to the genus Notohymena Blatterer and Foissner in the following characteristics: 18 fronto‐ventral‐transverse cirri, a flexible body, undulating membranes, dorsomarginal kineties, and the number of cirri in the marginal rows. Expand
Taxonomy and molecular phylogeny of two novel ciliates, with establishment of a new genus, Pseudogastrostyla n. g. (Ciliophora, Hypotrichia, Oxytrichidae).
TLDR
Phylogenetic analyses based on SSU rRNA gene sequence data indicate that Pseudogastrostyla n. Expand
Redefinition of the hypotrichous ciliate Uncinata, with descriptions of the morphology and phylogeny of three urostylids (Protista, Ciliophora)
TLDR
Both the morphology and phylogenetic analyses suggest that the genus Uncinata should be classified within the family Urostylidae, and both morphological and morphogenetic data suggest that Holosticha bradburyae Gong et al., 2001 should be transferred to uncinata as U. bradburae (Gong et al, 2001) comb. Expand
Morphology and molecular phylogeny of an Indian population of Cyrtohymena citrina (Ciliophora, Hypotricha), including remarks on ontogenesis of Urosomoida-Notohymena-Cyrtohymena group.
TLDR
Phylogenetic analyses supported non-monophyly of Cyrtohymena and other flexible-bodied oxytrichids. Expand
Redescription of two little-known urostyloid ciliates, Anteholosticharandani (Grolière, 1975) Berger, 2003 and A. antecirrata Berger, 2006 (Ciliophora, Urostylida).
The morphology of two little-known urostyloid ciliates, Anteholosticha randani (Grolière, 1975) Berger, 2003 and A. antecirrataBerger, 2006, collected from freshwater biotopes in southern China, wasExpand
Morphology and molecular phylogeny of Oxytricha seokmoensis sp. nov. (Hypotrichia: Oxytrichidae), with notes on its morphogenesis.
A new hypotrichous ciliate, Oxytricha seokmoensis sp. nov., was discovered in a soil from a forest in South Korea and described based on the observations of living and stained specimens. In addition,Expand
Multigene-based phylogeny of the ciliate families Amphisiellidae and Trachelostylidae (Protozoa: Ciliophora: Hypotrichia).
TLDR
The results indicate that Amphisiella is separated into two clades in phylogenetic trees, corroborated by difference in cortical granule distribution, and the monophyly of Trachelostylidae sensu Berger (2008) is strongly supported, suggesting it is a well-defined family. Expand
Morphology, ontogeny and molecular phylogeny of a novel saline soil ciliate, Urosomoida paragiliformis n. sp. (Ciliophora, Hypotrichia).
TLDR
Phylogenetic analyses based on SSU rDNA sequence data suggest a close relationship between U. paragiliformis n. Expand

Reconciling classical and molecular phylogenies in the stichotrichines (Ciliophora, Spirotrichea), including new sequences from some rare species
TLDR
Most morphological and DNA sequence data of the stichotrichs can be harmonized with the CEUU (Convergent Evolution of Urostylids and Uroleptids) hypothesis which suggests that the urostylid midventral pattern evolved from an oxytrichine ancestor, developing a second time within the Oxytrichidae.

Taxonomic Redescriptions of Two Ciliates, Protogastrostyla pulchra n. g., n. comb. and Hemigastrostyla enigmatica (Ciliophora: Spirotrichea, Stichotrichia), with Phylogenetic Analyses Based on 18S and 28S rRNA Gene Sequences
TLDR
It is concluded that these two species may represent some lower groups in the subclass Stichotrichia, and that G. pulchra should represent a new genus, Protogastrostyla n. Expand
An Antarctic hypotrichous ciliate, Parasterkiella thompsoni (Foissner) nov. gen., nov. comb., recorded in Argentinean peat-bogs: morphology, morphogenesis, and molecular phylogeny.
TLDR
New data on the morphogenesis of the dorsal ciliature justifies the transference of Sterkiella thompsoni to a new genus Parasterkiella. Expand
Phylogeny of the Stichotrichia (Ciliophora; Spirotrichea) Reconstructed with Nuclear Small Subunit rRNA Gene Sequences: Discrepancies and Accordances with Morphological Data
TLDR
The nuclear small subunit rRNA genes of seven species of the Stichotrichia, representatives of the families Oxytrichidae, Amphisiellidae, and Pseudourostylidae, were analysed and resulted in a poor resolution of the phylogenetic relationships. Expand

Cotterillia bromelicola nov. gen., nov. spec., a gonostomatid ciliate (Ciliophora, Hypotricha) from tank bromeliads (Bromeliaceae) with de novo originating dorsal kineties.
TLDR
The molecular differences between Trachelostyla, Gonostomum, and Cotterillia are small compared to their distinct morphologies and ontogeneses, suggesting that the 18S rDNA underestimates generic diversity. Expand
Insights into the phylogeny of sporadotrichid ciliates (Protozoa, Ciliophora: Hypotricha) based on genealogical analyses of multiple molecular markers
TLDR
P phylogenetic trees using the nucleotide sequences of the small-subunit rRNA gene and amino acid sequences of actin I and α-tubulin yielded different topologies, which may be caused by rapidly accumulated genetic characterizations of ciliates. Expand
Comparative phylogenetic study of Stichotrichia (Alveolata: Ciliophora: Spirotrichea) based on 18S-rDNA sequences.
TLDR
The results suggest the reconsideration of both CEUU and the position of Halteria among flexible-body oxytrichids and the monophyly of Stichotrichia if Pseudoamphisiella is considered an external (discocephalid related) taxon. Expand
