Hi folks, Oh these publishers! That's really useful isn't it? My copy is 1949 by H.E.Jaques , but LCCCN A51-3425, Revised edition, WM.C. Brown Company Publishers. Fig.121 is on page 81 and shows Polytomella agilis. So the various editions seem to be completely different. I wonder who messed that up!...

Hi Ken, Are you talking about the book " How to know the protozoa" by Jahn? 'cause in that book I find something on Astasia on p. 71 only. It states the presence of bluish green paramylum and I don't see hints that the genus in general lives as parasites of protozoans only. I also found an image on ...

Hi Frez,

just a brief answer to your question: the houses of testacea are basically made of chitinlike proteins. These can be reenforced by pieces of debris and selfproduced particles of silicic acid.

Tardigrada skin

Hi folks, found in a pond sample: skin of a tardigrada with four eggs. You can see the offspring already. ( I'm not talking about the rotifers, of course, although that would be sensationel...)

Thanks Charles. Yes, indeed, these pictures were made using the half crescent filter provided by Wim on one of his earlier Miscape articles. The more I use it the more I like it I must say.

Cassian wrote me that this should be a nematode of some sort, the clearly visible spear being a typical feature. Well, I didn't know there are segmented nemato...

Thanks Charles, I forgot to mention that the size of the critter is about 1-1.5mm. Well, I've pondered over many books on zoology, but this worm buisness is hopeless. As it doesn't show any hairs or bristles it probably is some sort of oligochaete. This group has more than 7000 species, so I think I...
