ABSTRACT. The small subunit ribosomal RNA genes of nine species belonging to six genera of litostome ciliates, namely Amphileptus aeschtae, Chaenea teres, Chaenea vorax, Lacrymaria marina, Litonotus paracygnus, Loxophyllum sp.‐GD‐070419, Loxophyllum jini, Loxophyllum rostratum, and Phialina salinarum, were sequenced for the first time. Phylogenetic trees were constructed using different methods to assess the inter‐ and intra‐generic relationships of haptorians, of which Chaenea, Lacrymaria… Expand
Phylogeny and classification of the Litostomatea (Protista, Ciliophora), with emphasis on free-living taxa and the 18S rRNA gene.
TLDR
The phylogenetic analyses and some strong morphological traits show body polarization and simplification of the oral apparatus as main evolutionary trends in the Litostomatea and three distinct lineages (subclasses) of the Haptoria and Trichostomatia. Expand
Phylogeny and classification of the Litostomatea ( Protista , Ciliophora ) , with emphasis on free-living taxa and the 18 S rRNA gene
The class Litostomatea is a highly diverse ciliate taxon comprising hundreds of species ranging from aerobic, free-living predators to anaerobic endocommensals. This is traditionally reflected byExpand
Further insights into the highly derived haptorids (Ciliophora, Litostomatea): Phylogeny based on multigene data
TLDR
Phylogenies inferred from the three individual genes and concatenated data sets show that the subclass Haptoria could be a multiphyletic complex with about up to four main clades while “interrupted” by some intermingled with the related subclasses Rhynchostomatia, Trichostomatsia and some incertae sedis. Expand
Phylogenetic and Taxonomic Revision of an Enigmatic Group of Haptorian Ciliates, with Establishment of the Kentrophyllidae fam. n. (Protozoa, Ciliophora, Litostomatea, Pleurostomatida)
TLDR
It is hypothesize that the two-sutures of Kentrophyllum is a plesiomorphy within the Pleurostomatida and the unique peripheral kinety might represent an autapomorphy of Kentrhyllum. Expand
Insights into the phylogeny of systematically controversial haptorian ciliates (Ciliophora, Litostomatea) based on multigene analyses
TLDR
The results suggest that the class-level taxonomy of ciliates is still not resolved, and also that a systematic revision of litostomes is required, beginning at high taxonomic levels (taxa currently ranked as subclasses and orders). Expand
Reconstruction of Evolutionary History of Pleurostomatid Ciliates (Ciliophora, Litostomatea, Haptoria): Interplay of Morphology and Molecules
Pleurostomatids are raptorial ciliates that form a very distinct group within the Haptoria. Traditionally, the order Pleurostoma- tida was divided into two families: the Amphileptidae with twoExpand
The systematic position of Paraspathidium Noland, 1937 (Ciliophora, Litostomatea?) inferred from primary SSU rRNA gene sequences and predicted secondary rRNA structure.
TLDR
Results support the placement of Paraspathidium close to prostomateans and plagiopyleans, or even as a distinct group possibly at ordinal rank, within the class Plagiopylea. Expand
The chaos prevails: molecular phylogeny of the Haptoria (Ciliophora, Litostomatea).
TLDR
The Haptoria are free-living predatory ciliates living in terrestrial and aquatic habitats all around the world and the Rhynchostomatia are the best candidates for a basal litostomatean group, which well corroborates the traditional morphology-based classifications. Expand
Morphology and Phylogeny of Two Novel Pleurostomatids (Ciliophora, Litostomatea), Establishing a New Genus
TLDR
Two new pleurostomatid species are investigated with state‐of‐the‐art methods, and an improved diagnosis for Protolitonotus was provided, suggesting a sister group relationship of P. clampi and the family Kentrophyllidae. Expand
Chaos Prevails : Molecular Phylogeny f the Haptoria ( Ciliophora , Litostomatea ) eter

Molecular phylogeny of litostome ciliates (Ciliophora, Litostomatea) with emphasis on free-living haptorian genera.
TLDR
The monophyly of the litostomes was tested using nine newly sequenced and four previously unpublished small subunit ribosomal RNA (SSrRNA) gene sequences from free-living Haptoria as well as from endosymbiotic Trichostomatia to distinguish three clades: an Australian clade; the order Entodiniomorphida; and the order Vestibuliferida.

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

TLDR
The morphology and taxonomy of 15 marine ciliates from China were investigated and the infraciliature and the silverline system of all species reported here were investigated using various silver impregnation methods and, if possible, biometrically described. Expand

TLDR
As a new species, L. qiuianum distinguished from its congeners by a combination of characters including the marine habitat and the distribution of extrusomes, the terminal position of contractile vacuole and the numbers of somatic kineties on both the right and left sides. Expand

TLDR
The monograph contains only one third of the species actually living in the highly diverse terrestrial habitats of Namibia, and shows that there must be many more free-living ciliate species globally than the 3000 estimated by FlNLAY. Expand

Chaenea teres has typical haptorid ultrastructure and cladistic analysis indicates the Chaenea may be most closely related to Fuscheria and Acropisthium, and suggests existing taxonomies of the subclass Haptoria need to be revised. Expand
