Abstract
    intro
    "The aloricate oligotrichs are a highly abundant, widely distributed and ecologically important group of ciliates (Protozoa, Ciliophora) in the marine environment. However, identification is difficult due to their fragility, small body size, similar body shape and the minute differences in the ciliary pattern only recognisable after time-consuming silver preparations. The determination of live specimens also needs very experienced ciliate taxonomists, whilst reliable identifications from Lugol-preserved material are almost impossible. Therefore, the following list of aloricate oligotrich ciliates is comprised only of the species which were originally described or re-described from the area under consideration, or were mentioned by a reliable reference, namely, based on silver-impregnated material investigated by an experienced ciliate taxonomist. Bare species lists based on Lugol-preserved or live material were not included due to the rather doubtful species identifications. The classification of the aloricate oligotrichs follows, for the sale of simplicity, Petz & Foissner (1992).
