The morphology and host-specificity of the histophagous apostome ciliate Vampyrophrya pelagica infecting pelagic copepods in the Seto Inland Sea, Japan, were intensively investigated. Four stages were reconfirmed in the life cycle of the ciliate. A mature cell within the phoront bears cilia ready for quick excystation, and unique lamellar structures in the cytoplasm appear to be precursors of food vacuole membranes. These lamellar structures completely disappear in the fully grown trophont. The… CONTINUE READING
