Caption: Light micrograph of the gastrotrichan Chaetonotus simrothi. Gastrotrichans are minute, unsegmented, fresh-water & marine worms which swim by means of a ciliated epidermis. They are hermaphrodite and appear to be related to the rotifers and roundworms. They are elongated, flattened & rarely exceed 1mm in length. The body surface is covered with an external layer (cuticula) which can form plates, bristles or spines. Most gastrotrichans possess adhesive glands which secrete a sticky fluid used to attach the organism to the substrate. Gastrotrichs feed on algae, bacteria & protozoans. Magnification unknown.
