Abstract We have used small subunit rRNA gene sequences to determine the phylogenetic relationships of species in three genera of endosymbiotic ciliates. We have confirmed that the astome Anoplophrya marylandensis is related to ciliates in the Class Oligohymenophorea, supporting the view that astomes are derived from hymenostome-like ancestors. We confirmed that Plagiotoma lumbrici, formerly considered to be a heterotrich, is a stichotrich spirotrich ciliate most closely related to Paraurostyla… 
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.
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.
New insights into the molecular phylogeny of Balantidium (Ciliophora, Vetibuliferida) based on the analysis of new sequences of species from fish hosts
TLDR
The results indicate that the genus Balantidium is polyphyletic and possibly should be represented by two different genera; however, the analysis of more species from other poikilothermic hosts (amphibians, reptiles) should be made before a revised taxonomical proposal could be made.
Further Consideration of the Phylogeny of Some “Traditional” Heterotrichs (Protista, Ciliophora) of Uncertain Affinities, Based on New Sequences of the Small Subunit rRNA Gene
ABSTRACT. The systematic relationships and taxonomic positions of the traditional heterotrich genera Condylostentor, Climacostomum, Fabrea, Folliculina, Peritromus, and Condylostoma, as well as the
Morphology and Phylogeny of the Soil Ciliate Metopus yantaiensis n. sp. (Ciliophora, Metopida), with Identification of the Intracellular Bacteria
The morphology and infraciliature of a new ciliate, Metopus yantaiensis n. sp., discovered in coastal soil of northern China, were investigated. It is distinguished from its congeners by a
Small‐Subunit rRNA Phylogenies Suggest That Epalxella antiquorum (Penard, 1922) Corliss, 1960 (Ciliophora, Odontostomatida) Is a Member of the Plagyopylea
TLDR
There are no obvious morphological features to unite these three clades and the class Plagiopylea must continue to be referred to as a “riboclass.” using the Epalxella sequence as a basal marker, it is tentatively identified 20 environmental sequences to the terminal plagiopylean clades.
Morphology of Nyctotheroides hubeiensis Li et al. 1998 from Frog Hosts with Molecular Phylogenetic Study of Clevelandellid Ciliates (Armophorea, Clevelandellida)
TLDR
The phylogenetic analysis showed that N. hubeiensis fell into the Nyctotheroides clade, which was strongly supported as monophyletic and clustered as basal to the genera Nyctotherus and Clevelandella.
Molecular Phylogeny and Ontogeny of a New Ciliate Genus, Paracladotricha salina n. g., n. sp. (Ciliophora, Hypotrichia)
TLDR
A hypotrichous ciliate discovered in hypersaline waters from Qingdao, China, is discovered and its morphology and some major ontogenetic stages were studied, indicating that P. salina is, as also demonstrated by the oral apparatus, a member of the gonostomatids.
The All-Data-Based Evolutionary Hypothesis of Ciliated Protists with a Revised Classification of the Phylum Ciliophora (Eukaryota, Alveolata)
TLDR
The molecular dataset was expanded with representatives from 55 orders and all major lineages and the monophyly of classes Phyllopharyngea, Karyorelictea, Armophorea, Prostomatea, Plagiopylea, Colpodea and Heterotrichea are confirmed.

Phylogenetic Relationships of the Subclass Peritrichia (Oligohymenophorea, Ciliophora) Inferred from Small Subunit rRNA Gene Sequences1
TLDR
The phylogenetic relationships among peritrichs remain unresolved and trees were constructed using distance-matrix, maximum-likelihood and maximum-parsimony methods, all of which strongly supported the monophyly of the subclass Peritrichia.
Phylogenetic Relationships of the Subclass Peritrichia (Oligohymenophorea, Ciliophora) with Emphasis on the Genus Epistylis, Inferred from Small Subunit rRNA Gene Sequences
TLDR
It is concluded that the perstomial area, especially the peristomial lip, might be the important phylogenetic character within the genus Epistylis.
Phylogenetic Relationships of Orders Within the Class Colpodea (Phylum Ciliophora) Inferred from Small Subunit rRNA Gene Sequences
TLDR
Predictions of relationships within the class Colpodea were investigated by determining the complete small subunit rRNA gene sequences for the colpodid Bresslaua vorax, the grossglockneriid Pseudoplatyophrya nana, and a partial sequence for the bryometopid Bryometopus sphagni and suggesting merotelokinetal stomatogenesis appears to be a derived character state.
Phylogenetic Relationships of the Subclass Peniculia (Oligohymenophorea, Ciliophora) Inferred from Small Subunit rRNA Gene Sequences
TLDR
It is concluded that the Subclass Peniculia should be divided into two orders, the Order Urocentrida and Order Peniculida, with the latter order having two suborders, the Suborder Frontoniina and PenicULina.
Phylogenetic relationships within the class Spirotrichea (Ciliophora) inferred from small subunit rRNA gene sequences.
TLDR
The molecular data support the morphological and ontogenetic evidence that the pattern of 18 frontal-ventral-transversal cirri evolved in the stemline of the Oxytrichidae and was modified several times independently.
Phylogeny of the fish parasite Ichthyophthirius and its relatives Ophryoglena and Tetrahymena (Ciliophora, Hymenostomatia) inferred from 18S ribosomal RNA sequences.
TLDR
Phylogenetic relationships within the subclass Hymenostomatia were inferred from the comparisons of three new SSrRNA gene sequences from Ichthyophthirius multifiliis, Ophryoglena catenula, and Tetrahymena corlissi, consistent with their placement in theOphryoglenina.

Abstract Various echinoderms are colonized by species from several classes of the Phylum Ciliophora, indicating that the echinoderm “habitat” has been invaded independently on numerous occasions

TLDR
The complete small subunit rRNA gene sequences of the heterotrich Blepharisma americanum and the colpodid Colpoda inflata were determined to be 1719 and 1786 nucleotides respectively, indicating that C. inflata is allied more closely with the nassophorean and oligohymenophoreans than the spirotrichs.
