Microscopy: Vorticella sp (Unidentified Species) 004 (Stock Footage)

Vorticella is a genus of protozoa, with over 16 known species. They are stalked,inverted bell-shaped ciliates, placed among the peritrichs. Each cell has a separate stalk anchored onto the substrate, which contains a contractile fibril called amyoneme. When stimulated, this shortens, causing the stalk to coil like a winter.Vorticella species mainly live in freshwater ponds and streams—generally anywhere protists are plentiful. (Source Wikipedia)
