Caption: Strombilidium. Light microscope footage of Strombilidium sp. This filter-feeding freshwater ciliate protozoan consists of a bell-shaped head and a contractile stalk that is anchored to the substrate. It can also swim freely. Cilia (tiny hair-like structures) attached to the head are used to capture food and also for movement. Filmed with differential interference contrast illumination.
