Insights into the phylogeny of sporadotrichid ciliates (Protozoa, Ciliophora: Hypotricha) based on genealogical analyses of multiple molecular markers
TLDR
P phylogenetic trees using the nucleotide sequences of the small-subunit rRNA gene and amino acid sequences of actin I and α-tubulin yielded different topologies, which may be caused by rapidly accumulated genetic characterizations of ciliates.
Molecular phylogeny of oligotrich genera Omegastrombidium and Novistrombidium (Protozoa, Ciliophora) for the systematical relationships within Family Strombidiidae
TLDR
The main results are: the SS rRNA gene sequence analyses match the recent findings about the molecular evolution of oligotrichs, indicating that the family Strombidiidae is paraphyletic, and the molecular data indicate a possibility of paraphyly for the genus Stombidium.
Taxonomy and Phylogeny of Two Tintinnid Ciliates of Leprotintinnus (Protista, Ciliophora, Choreotrichida) Combining the Loricae, Cytological, Ontogenetic Features, and Barcoding Genes
TLDR
The molecular phylogeny confirmed that Leprotintinnus species are closely related to some species of Tintinnopsis, Stylicauda, Rhizodomus, and Climacocylis and the lorica of L. nordqvisti is polymorphic or plastic.
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.
Three redescriptions in Tintinnopsis (Protista: Ciliophora: Tintinnina) from coastal waters of China, with cytology and phylogenetic analyses based on ribosomal RNA genes
TLDR
It is inferred that the ciliary tuft and details such as the commencement of the rightmost kinety in the lateral ciliary field are synapomorphies that may help clarify the systematics of Tintinnopsis -like taxa.
Phylogenetic Investigations on Ten Genera of Tintinnid Ciliates (Ciliophora: Spirotrichea: Tintinnida), Based on Small Subunit Ribosomal RNA Gene Sequences
Tintinnida is a diverse taxon that accommodates over 1,500 morphospecies, which is an important component of marine planktonic food webs. However, evolutionary relationships of tintinnids are poorly
Phylogeny and Systematic Position of Zosterodasys (Ciliophora, Synhymeniida): A Combined Analysis of Ciliate Relationships Using Morphological and Molecular Data
ABSTRACT. The Synhymeniida is characterized both by a band of somatic dikinetids, the synhymenium, extending across the surface of the cell and by a ventral cell mouth lacking specialized feeding
A comparative fine structural and phylogenetic analysis of resting cysts in oligotrich and hypotrich Spirotrichea (Ciliophora).
An updated phylogeny of oligotrich and choreotrich ciliates (Protozoa, Ciliophora, Spirotrichea) with representative taxa collected from Chinese coastal waters
TLDR
The authors' analyses support the previous reports that the genus Tintinnopsis is polyphyletic and can not refute the monophyly of Strombidium.

A Cladistic Approach for the Classification of Oligotrichid Ciliates (Ciliophora: Spirotricha).
TLDR
The cladistic approaches suggest paraphyly of the family Strombidiidae probably due to the scarce knowledge, and a revised classification of the Oligotrichea is suggested, including all sufficiently known families and genera.
Insights into the diversity of choreotrich and oligotrich ciliates (Class: Spirotrichea) based on genealogical analyses of multiple loci.
TLDR
Analysis of multi-locus sequence analyses indicate that, at least for some ciliate lineages, DNA polymorphisms vary temporally, and that genetic heterogeneity underlies some very similar morphological types.
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.
Morphology and Infraciliature of Trochiliopsis australis N. Sp., Pelagohalteria viridis (Fromentel, 1876) N. G., N. Comb., and Strobilidium lacustris N. Sp. (Protozoa, Ciliophora)1
TLDR
Three ciliate species from Australia and Norway were examined by silver impregnation, biometry, and scanning electron microscopy and two Halteria species belong to the new genus, which is redescribed here.
Morphology and Morphogenesis of Strobilidium caudatum (Fromentel), Meseres corlissi N. Sp., Halteria grandinella (Müller), and Strombidium rehwaldi N. Sp., and a Proposed Phylogenetic System for Oligotrich Ciliates (Protozoa, Ciliophora)1
TLDR
Halteriids are more closely related to hypotrichs than they are to other oligotrichs, and are raised to ordinal and subclass ranks, Halteriida n.
