The morphology and phylogeny of four oligotrichid ciliates, Parallelostrombidium paraellipticum sp. n., P. dragescoi sp. n., P. jankowskii (Xu et al. 2009) comb. n., and P. kahli (Xu et al. 2009) comb. n., are described or redescribed based on live observation, protargol stained material, and SSU rRNA gene sequences. The new species P. paraellipticum sp. n. is characterized by its obovoidal cell shape, adoral zone composed of 17–21 collar, 9–11 buccal, and two thigmotactic membranelles, and… 
Morphological Studies on Four Brackish Water Ciliates of the Class Spirotrichea (Protista, Ciliophora)
TLDR
The morphology of two oligotrich and two hypotrich ciliates collected from the coasts of north and south China are reinvestigated, and the smaller cortical granules, clustered around dorsal bristles for the first time are described.
Morphological Studies on Four Brackish Water Ciliates of the Class Spirotrichea (Protista, Ciliophora)
TLDR
The morphology of two oligotrich and two hypotrich ciliates collected from the coasts of north and south China are reinvestigated, and the smaller cortical granules, clustered around dorsal bristles for the first time are described.
Two Anaerobic Ciliates (Ciliophora, Armophorea) from China: Morphology and SSU rDNA Sequence, with Report of a New Species, Metopus paravestitus nov. spec
TLDR
The morphology and phylogeny of two metopid ciliates, collected from anaerobic habitats in China, were investigated using live observation, protargol staining method, and SSU rDNA sequencing, confirming once again the non‐monophyly of the genus Metopus and genus Metopidae.
Morphology and Molecular Phylogeny of Two Freshwater Oligotrich Ciliates (Protozoa, Ciliophora, Oligotrichia), Pelagostrombidium fallax (Zacharias, 1895) Krainer, 1991 and Limnostrombidium viride (Stein, 1867) Krainer, 1995, with Brief Notes on Stomatogenesis
TLDR
Phylogenetic analyses, based on SSU rRNA gene sequence data, reveal that P. fallax and L. viride cluster with Strombidium species while the result of an AU test did not reject the possibility of monophyly of the family Pelagostrombidiidae.
Redescription of five tintinnine ciliates (Alveolata: Ciliophora: Oligotrichea) from coastal waters of Qingdao, China
TLDR
The morphology in vivo of the lorica and cell proper of all five species are described and compared with original and subsequent descriptions and three are newly recorded from China.
Overview of the Diversity, Phylogeny and Biogeography of Strombidiid Oligotrich Ciliates (Protista, Ciliophora), With a Brief Revision and a Key to the Known Genera
TLDR
The current work revises the systematics of strombidiids based on morphologic, phylogenetic, and biogeographic evidence and provides a genus-level review of marine strom bidiids.
Diversity of oligotrich ciliates (Ciliophora, Spirotrichea) in the northern coast of South China Sea as revealed in LSU rDNA sequences
TLDR
Oligotrich morphospecies diversity has been underestimated as low-abundance species, and the LSU rDNA oligotrich sequence database needs to be better promoted.
Overview of the biodiversity and geographic distribution of aloricate oligotrich ciliates (Protozoa, Ciliophora, Spirotrichea) in coastal waters of southern China
TLDR
The results of several biodiversity and faunal studies on aloricate oligotrich ciliates in typical coastal habitats of southern China that were carried out from 2006 to 2016 are summarized.

Taxonomy, morphology and molecular systematics of a new oligotrich ciliate, Williophrya maedai gen. nov., sp. nov., with redescriptions of Strombidium basimorphum and Pseudotontonia simplicidens (Protozoa, Ciliophora, Oligotrichia)
TLDR
The morphology and small subunit rRNA (SSrRNA) gene sequence of a marine oligotrich ciliate, Williophrya maedai gen. nov., are reported and it is shown that this genus is assigned to the family Strombidiidae although it has some unique morphological features regarding its oral and somatic ciliatures.
Taxonomy and molecular phylogeny of four Strombidium species, including description of S. pseudostylifer sp. nov. (Ciliophora, Oligotrichia)
TLDR
The morphology and small subunit rRNA (SSrRNA) gene sequence of four Strombidium species are recorded, including a new species, S. pseudostylifer sp.
Taxonomy and molecular systematics of three oligotrich (s.l.) ciliates including descriptions of two new species, Strombidium guangdongense sp. nov. and Strombidinopsis sinicum sp. nov. (Protozoa, Ciliophora)
TLDR
In this study, the morphology of three oligotrich ciliates was investigated and the molecular phylogeny of each species based on small subunit rRNA (SSU rRNA) gene sequence data was analysed, suggesting the latter character is a synapomorphy for this group of strombidiids.

TLDR
The position of the oral primordium in the genus Cyrtostrombidium is observed and a possibly homoplasious trait, a dorsal split in the girdle kinety, is observed, which partially supports the hypothesis of somatic ciliary pattern evolution recently put forth by Agatha and Strüder‐Kypke.
