drawings of two somatic kinetids from four classes of ciliates, two with somatic monokinetids ( a , b ) 
and two with somatic dikinetids ( c , d ). ( a ) The somatic kinetids of the Class OLIGOHYMENOPHOREA . Note that the 
 transverse ribbons (T) are radial to the perimeter of the kinetosome (Ks). The kinetodesmata (Kd) from adjacent kinetids 
overlap but the postciliary ribbons (Pc) do not. ( b ) The somatic kinetids of the Class LITOSTOMATEA . Ciliates in 
this class typically have two sets of transverse ribbons (T1, T2) and the postciliary ribbons often lie side-by-side in the 
cortex. ( c ) The somatic kinetids of the Class HETEROTRICHEA in which the postciliary ribbons (Pc) overlap laterally 
to form the Km fiber or postciliodesma (Pcd). ( d ) The somatic kinetids of the Class COLPODEA in which the trans-
verse ribbons (Tp) of the posterior kinetosome of the dikinetid overlap to form the transversodesma (Td) or LKm fiber 
Fig. 2.1. (continued) ( e ) has a kinetodesma (Kd) and postciliary ribbon (Pc) on its right and a transverse ribbon (T) 
on its left (cf. Fig. 2.1E). C A pair of kinetosomes (upper) and a dyad (lower) in relation to the body axis (anterior 
is towards the top of the page). D Cross-section of a kinetosome as viewed from the outside of the cell showing the 
numbering system of Grain (1969) on the outside of the triplets and the numbering system of Pitelka (1969) on the 
inside of the triplets. The postciliary ribbon (Pc) is numbered as 9 or 5, respectively. E Examples of somatic kinetids 
of ciliates from different classes showing the diversity of patterns with dikinetids ( a–d ) and monokinetids ( e–i ). 
Note the kinetodesma (Kd), postciliary ribbon (Pc), and transverse ribbon (T) associated with kinetosomes (Ks). A 
 retrodesmal fibril (Rd) may extend posteriorly to support the postciliary ribbon and a cathetodesmal fibril (Cat) may 
extend towards the left into the pellicle. Occasionally a transverse fibrous spur (TFS) replaces the transverse micro-
tubules. ( a ) The karyorelictean Loxodes . ( b ) The heterotrichean Spirostomum . ( c ) The clevelandellid Sicuophora . ( d )

ate Porpostoma . ( h ) The scuticociliate Conchophthirus . ( i ) The astome Coelophrya
