A B ST R A C T Many ciliates species are the common parasites found in Indian earthworm Pheretima posthuma . During the period of two years (Jan. 2007 to Dec. 2008) total 2609 number of earthworm animals were examined. In the first year (Jan. 2007 to Dec. 2007) 1146 P. posthuma were examined, 693 of these were positive for ciliate infection. The percentage of prevalence being (60.47%), in second year (Jan. 2008 to Dec. 2008) total 963 animals were examined, 560 of these were positive with… 



Systematics of Euplotes (Ciliophora, Hypotrichida); Toward Union of the Old and the New

It is suggested that the following can form a basis for identification of members of the genus Euplotes: 1) cortical sculpturing, 2) arrangement of all ciliary organelles, including dorsal and endoral cilia, and 3) details of the silverline system.


Anoplophrya marylandensis, a new species of astomatous ciliate, was discovered in the intestine of Lumbricus terrestris (Linn.. 1758) and Helodrilus caliginosus (Savigny, 1826). Many of the infected

On some New Cephaline Gregarines

The gregarine described below has been found abundantly in the alimentary canal of many specimens of the carpenter bee, Xylocopa aestuans, and is the first to be described from any Hymenopteran host.

Revision of the Order Hypotrichida (Ciliophora, Protozoa)1

The revision recognizes 310 species distributed among 51 genera and 6 families, based on the known limits of structural variation as well as decisions relative to synonyms and homonyms.

Protozoan Ecology: A Note on Its Current Status

The recognition in recent years of the possible role(s) played by the Protozoa in problems of pollution has caused renewed interest in many of these microorganisms, which should develop significantly in the years ahead.

On the Evolution and Systematics of Ciliated Protozoa

In the present discussion particular emphasis will be placed upon the problems of evolution and phylogenetic interrelationship at the ordinal and supra-ordinal levels.

An Illustrated Key to the Higher Groups of the Ciliated Protozoa, with Definition of Terms*

The basic terminology employed in these brief characterizations, usable in systematic studies of ciliates in general, is defined first, and a plea is made for a more uniform vocabulary, especially in reference to structures which are without doubt homologous throughout the several higher ciliate taxa.

Taxonomic-Nomenclatural Practices in Protozoology and the New International Code of Zoological Nomenclature*

Common nomenclatural practices, often malpractices, of protozoologists and parasitologists who work primarily in taxonomic fields are revealed and discussed in light of recommendations and mandatory regulations to be found in the new Code.

Some Gregarines from Crustaceans taken near Bombay, India*

Three gregarines are described from the digestive tracts of marine crustacea from Bombay, India from Etisus laevimanus, C. matutae n.sp.

Some important anniversaries in the history of protozoology

The mid-1990s are rich in anniversary dates of major past events that have been highly influential in subsequent advances in teaching and research activities involving particularly the ciliated protozoa, particularly in subject areas of ecology and taxonomy.
