Drawing of Antetintinnopsis karajacensis comb. nov. in vivo (A, DE) and after protargol staining (BC, FG). A Ventral view of a representative specimen, arrowhead and arrow denote the tentaculoids and elongated ventral ciliary tuft, respectively. B Macronucleus composed of four nodules. C Kinetal map of a morphostatic specimen. D From Brandt [56]. E Ventral view of the cell through the lorica, arrowhead shows the elongated ventral ciliary tuft. Ciliary pattern of ventral (F) and dorsal (G) side of a representative individual. BM, buccal membranelle; CM, collar membranelles; DK, dorsal kinety; FB, fiber bundles; LA, lateral ciliary field; LF, left ciliary field; PCM, prolonged collar membranelles; PK, posterior kinety; RF, right ciliary field; VK, ventral kinety. Scale bars = 40 μm
