[2015] Ian Chang: Euplotes

Euplotes is a protozoan ciliate that measures 80-200 micrometers long. It lives in freshwater. It is a heterotroph. It eats food particles found in freshwater. Euplotes feeds through a cytostome surrounded by cilia bonded into membranelles to create a current to attract food. It has hundreds of cilia bonded together into cirri which help it swim through water or walk on a substrate such as an airbubble.
