Identification Cells are very small and spherical, measuring only 3-8 micrometer in diameter. The two flagella are slightly unequal in length, measuring 13-16 and 16-20 micrometer in length. The coiling haptonema is ca 20 micrometer long. Cells are covered with species-specific organic scales of two types. For critical identification of the species the scales need to be identified, using transmission electron microscopy, see Eikrem& Throndsen 1998 for illustrations of the scales,  [details]
