oral kinetids at least including a series of radi-
ally oriented kinetosomal rows along the right

kinetosome); left oral polykinetids, ranging from 
one to many that may extend out into the preoral 
suture (e.g., Puytoraciella ); stomatogenesis, pat-
tern not known; division in reproductive cysts;

sive, deep anterior oral cavity ; stomatogenesis,

tube-shaped; free-swimming; somatic ciliation, 
holotrichous, dense; posterior end of oral cavity 
with serial left oral polykinetids curved to right
