Green algae and sphagnum moss. Polarised light micrograph of chlorophyte green algae (small, centre) and sphagnum sp. moss. Suctoria obtain food through specialised suctorial tentacles that allow them to fasten themselves to their prey. While fully developed Suctoria do not have cilia, they are classified as ciliates because of the presence of cilia during the larval stage. Magnification: x400 when printed 10 centimetres wide.
