Caption: Parasitic protozoan. Differential interference contrast micrograph of a parasitic Metaradiophrya sp. ciliate protozoan, showing two rows of contractile vacuoles (circles), and the hook-like holdfast (upper right) that it uses to attach itself to its host. This parasite lives in the guts of earthworms and is covered in tiny hair-like structures (cilia) which it uses for locomotion. Magnification: x230 when printed 10 centimetres wide.
