Caption: Light micrograph of a common rotifer (roundworm family) Brachionus sp., showing its corona (crown shaped) fully extended. Rotifers are divided into three parts; the head (left), trunk (middle) & foot (right). The foot ends in two toes, which secrete a cement for anchoring the rotifer whilst feeding, usually on unicellular green algae. A red eyespot is visible in the head as are the trophi, or hard, pointed jaws, situated just below the eyespot. Mag: X25 (at 35mm size).
