Abstract

Characterisation: Hypotrichous ciliates with usually 18 frontal-ventral-transverse cirri clustered to six distinct groups and/or at least one fragmenting (splitting) dorsal kinety (primarily kinety 3; fragmentation sometimes secondarily lost). In the 18-cirri oxytrichids the frontal-ventral-transverse cirri originate from usually six longitudinal primordia segregating 1,3,3,3,4,4 cirri.
