Fig. 6

Tintinnopsis tocantinensis in vivo (A, EH) and after protargol staining (BD, IK). A Ventral view of a representative individual. B, C Ciliary pattern of ventral and dorsal sides of the same specimen from Taizhou population, arrowhead indicates the macronucleus. D Kinetal map of a morphostatic specimen. E Ventral view of an extended cell in the lorica. F From Kofoid & Campbell [26]. G Ventral view of a living cell of T. tocantinensis from Haikou. H Details of the lorica wall, arrowhead indicates the tentaculoids. I Details of the ciliary pattern on dorsal side, arrowhead indicates DK. J Details of the ciliary pattern on ventral side. K Ciliary pattern on ventral side, arrowhead refers to ventral kinety and arrow shows the posterior kinety. BM, buccal membranelle; CM, collar membranelles; DK, dorsal kinety; LA, lateral ciliary field; LF, left ciliary field; PCM, prolonged collar membranelles; PK, posterior kinety; RF, right ciliary field; VK, ventral kinety. Scale bars = 60 μm (A, EH), 30 μm (BC)
