Photomicrographs of Antetintinnopsis gracilis comb. nov. in vivo (AC) and after protargol staining (DG). AC Variations in lorica shape of Qingdao population. D Kinetidal distribution in left ciliary field, arrowhead marks the anteriormost dikinetids. EF Detail views of the ciliary pattern in ventral (F) and dorsal (E) side, arrowhead in (E) indicates the macronucleus; arrowheads in (F) show collar membranelles. G The basal bodies of elongated ventral ciliary tuft (arrowhead). DK, dorsal kinety; LA, lateral ciliary field; LF, left ciliary field; PK, posterior kinety; RF, right ciliary field; VK, ventral kinety. Scale bars = 30 μm (A, E), 8 μm (D)
