Caption: Hypotrich protozoan. Differential interference contrast micrograph of two Kerona pediculus ciliate hypotrich protozoans, showing the adhesive discs (inner circles) that they use to attach themselves to hydrozoa. These protozoa are known as ciliates because they propel themselves through the water by beating tiny hair-like structures known as cilia. Magnification: x360 when printed 10 centimetres wide.
