Photomicrographs of Antetintinnopsis karajacensis comb. nov. after protargol staining (AJ). AG Specimens from Haikou. Details of dorsal side showing the right ciliary field, arrow shows the anterior dikinetids. BD Ventral views of representative individuals, arrowheads in (C) mark the macronuclear nodules; arrowhead and arrow in (D) mark the prolonged collar membranelles and fibers bundles, respectively. E Dorsal view of a representative individuals, arrowhead indicates the elongated ciliary tuft. F Ciliary patterns in ventral side of a crushed specimen, arrow marks elongated ciliary tuft and arrowhead indicates the anterior dikinetids in left ciliary field. G Details of ventral kinety and lateral ciliary field, arrowhead marks the densely arranged kinetosomes in the elongated ciliary tuft. HJ Specimens from Beihai, arrowhead in (I) denotes the bundles of argyrophilic fibers associated with distal end of each collar membranelle, arrow in (J) indicates the elongated ciliary tuft. 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 = 20 μm
