Amphorides (Amphorella) quradrilineata
Description A common tintinnid ciliate in Mediterranean. It is about 150 microns long. Like other tintiinids, the ciliate cell which resembles an oligotrich ciliate is inside a shell or lorica. Tintinnids feed on phytoplankton, microscopic algae and in turn serve as food for larger plankton organisms such as copepods and fish larvae.Author Dolan, JohnJPG file - 1.09 MB - 1700 x 1700 pixelsadded on 2006-02-171 276 viewsWoRMS taxa Amphorides quadrilineata (Clapar├Ęde & Lachmann, 1858)Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorchecked Dolan, John 2013-03-15Creative Commons LicenseThis work is licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution-Noncommercial-Share Alike 4.0 License
