Uroleptus (isolated)

The attached photo is of the same Uroleptusfrom the last post; just in a different light level. Along the left side and posterior of the cell are most of the cirri. Toward the anterior is an adoral ring of cirri, as well as an AZM right of the cytostome.

Note: AZM stands for Adoral Zone of Membranelles, referring to one or more sheets of linked cilia to one or both sides of the cell’s mouth. The linked cilia often operate in synchrony.
