Microbes in spaces among particles

Small Halteria ciliates and numerous diatoms are swimming in the spaces among particles. From behind one particle, a Euglena flagellate shows half of its body. Halteria and a larger ciliate busily swim around Euglena’ hiding place.

Commentary by Prof. Yuji Tsukii, Hosei University
The first organism to appear is Halteria.

The one appearing next may belong to the Euglenid group.

The organism crossing behind Euglena is more likely Frontonia leucas, or possibly F. marina.
