Morphology and phylogeny of two species of Loxodes (Ciliophora, Karyorelictea), with description of a new subspecies, Loxodes striatus orientalis subsp. n.


The morphology and phylogeny of Loxodes vorax and L. striatus orientalis subsp. n. were investigated based on infraciliature and small subunit (SSU) rRNA gene sequence data. Loxodes striatus orientalis subsp. n. was separated from L. striatus striatus stat. n. by having fewer dikinetids in the intrabuccal kinety (35-55 vs. 50-70) and a variable number of… (More)
