Caption: Light micrograph showing a number of ciliates Tokophyra cyclopum clustered on the antenna of the tiny freshwater crustacean, Cyclops sp. Tokophyra are suctorians, sessile (sedentary) animals, ciliated only in the immature form, that catch free-swimming ciliates on the end of tentacles. The tentacles are then used like 'drinking straws' to transfer the contents of the prey to the predator. Magnification: x80 at 35mm size.
