somes as somatic mucocysts, sometimes of two 
types, one being rod-like; oral region, often 
expansive, with paroral often prominent with 
long cilia, forming a curtain or velum as the 
organism feeds; paroral infraciliary base with 
a short a and an elongate b segment and with 
c segment as a permanent scutica or scuti-
covestige; ribbed wall conspicuous, may be in 
two fields ; cytostome, equatorial or subequatorial 
in anterior 3/4 of body, rarely leaving room for 
a director-meridian; stomatogenesis of opisthe 
oral structures derived from paroral of proter 
and scutica ; microphagous, predominantly bacte-
rivorous, but some species algivorous; in marine, 
freshwater, and terrestrial habitats, widely distrib-
uted as free-living forms, sometimes in sands, but 
with some species commensalistic in molluscs and 
other invertebrates, and some species coprozoic; 
nine families.
