shape, cylindrical to bell-shaped, 
narrowing toward oral end; zooid, free-swimming 
with aboral end forward, secondarily (?) stalk-
less but with inactive scopula at the aboral pole 
and a permanently ciliated telotrochal band ; 
oral region, as for subclass, but with a small 
separate group of rigid cilia prominent in one 
genus (i.e., Opisthonecta ) ; macronucleus, band-
form; micronucleus, present; contractile vacuole, 
present; cytoproct (?); in freshwater habitats, espe-
cially the plankton; two genera. 
NOTE : Fauré-Fremiet (1950c) argued that 
these genera were probably not phylogeneti-
cally related and suggested that Opisthonecta
derived from a stalked Epistylis -like ancestor while 
Telotrochidium derived from an Opercularia -like 
ancestor. While Telotrochidium has not yet been 
sequenced, Opisthonecta does appear to group 
with an Epistylis clade (e.g., Lynn & Strüder-
Kypke, 2005).

 Family ROVINJELLIDAE Matthes, 1972 
 Size, medium; shape, elongate, cylindrical-coni-
cal; zooids in two-membered colonies, sharing a 
stalk that is in two parts – in the lorica, a proxi-
mal part that folds into accordion-like pleats 
on contraction, and a non-contractile, distal 
part outside the lorica that is attached to the 
substrate ; lorica, gaping widely at its upper (= 
oral) end ; oral region as for subclass, with a large, 
slightly protuberant epistomial disk; macronucleus, 
band-shaped; micronucleus (?); contractile vacu-
ole, present; cytoproct (?); in marine and freshwa-
ter habitats on crustaceans ; four genera and one 
genus incertae sedis .

yet sessile, and adhering to substrata directly 
by scopula, which often forms a flattened disc, 
sometimes extensive and often markedly distinct 
from the rest of the body ; trochal band, temporary 
in telotroch, except for Ambiphrya , which has a 
permanently ciliated trochal band; oral region, as 
for subclass; macronucleus, elongate, sometimes 
band-shaped; micronucleus, present; contractile 
vacuole, present; cytoproct (?); in marine and 
freshwater habitats, generally found as epibionts 
on invertebrates (e.g., leeches , marine worms) and 
gills of fishes and molluscs , but one free-living 
planktonic species ( Gonzeella ) forming a large, 
gelatinous pseudocolony; 99 genera and one genus 
incertae sedis .

 Family TERMITOPHRYIDAE Lom in Corliss, 1979 
 Size, medium to large; shape, inverted cone; 
zooid, solitary; possibly free-swimming; scopula
produces a unique, pad-like disc as an organelle 
of temporary (?) attachment ; oral region, mark-
edly reduced in diameter and sunken into the 
cell body, with a long, helical, deep infundibu-
lum in which oral ciliature makes five helical 
turns ; macronucleus, band-form; micronucleus, 
present; contractile vacuole, present; cytoproct (?); 
cysts; in terrestrial habitats as endocommen-
sals in the intestine of African termites of the 
Subfamily Apicotermitinae ; one genus

 Family USCONOPHRYIDAE Clamp, 1991 
 Size, small; shape, ovoid, flattened; zooids, 
solitary or paired, attached to the substrate by 
the lorica; lorica, hemispherical or urn-shaped, 
with an aperture that lacks a closure appara-
tus ; oral region as for subclass, but with a rigid 
peristomial lip and extensible peristomial disk; 
telotroch forming to right side of parent (when 
viewed from above) ; macronucleus, ellipsoid; 
micronucleus, present; contractile vacuole, present; 
cytoproct (?); in freshwater habitats on the append-
ages and body cuticle of isopod crustaceans; one

 Family VAGINICOLIDAE de Fromentel, 1874 
 (for Vaginiferidae; syn. Cothurniidae ) 
 Size, small to large; shape, conical to cylin-
droid, generally very slender; zooid, contractile, 
attached in lorica by aboral end, either with 
or without stalk ; lorica, attached directly to the 
substrate or by a stalk; oral region as for subclass, 
protrusible well beyond opening of lorica, and 
with a retractable peristomial lip and distinct 
epistomial disk ; fission, isotomic or anisotomic; 
macronucleus, ribbon-like, parallel to long axis 
of body; micronucleus (?); contractile vacuole, 
present; cytoproct (?); in marine and freshwater 
habitats, attached to plants or inanimate substrata 
or as symphorionts; 18 genera, of which one is 
a fossil genus from the Lower Triassic, and one 
genus incertae sedis .
