Ventral infraciliature of early divider
Infraciliature (ventral surface) of the chilodonellid ciliate Pseudochilodonopsis piscatoris (Blochmann, 1895) Foissner, 1979 in early division. Stomatogenesis is of the telokinetal type in which the oral apparatus of the posterior daughter cell (opisthe) derives from fragments of several left sided kineties. As can be seen here, stomatogenesis precedes cytokinesis. Collected from a freshwater pond near Boise, Idaho February 2005.Stained by the silver carbonate technic (see Foissner, W.Europ. J. Protistol.27,313-330;1991). Brightfield. This image was taken by William Bourland. He now uses a Zeiss Axioskop 2 with Spot Insight and Spot Flex CCD cameras (Diagnostic Instruments).
