Caption: Epistylis protozoan colony on algae. Light micrograph of a colony of Epistylis sp. protozoa (centre right) attached to a green algae filament (lower left). Epistylis is a genus of sessile (sedentary) single-cell protozoans, with a long stalk and a flattened head. At the top of the head is the mouth, surrounded by many fine cilia hairs. These create a vortex in the surrounding water, washing food particles into the mouth. Magnification: x120 when printed at 10 centimetres wide.
