Caption

Bdelloid rotifer (Philodina roseola), differential interference contrast (DIC) light micrograph. There are no male bdelloid rotifers.

Note the crown of cilia (corona), the red eyespots, and the mastax, a jaw like device for grinding food particles. Magnification: x160 when printed 10 cm wide.
