Strobilidium disturbs the hunting of Pleuronema

A ciliate called Pleuronema is hiding between particles waiting for food. It is driven away by a Strobilidium which repeatedly jumps into Pleuronema's hiding place.

Commentary by Prof. Yuji Tsukii, Hosei University
The organism hiding between particles is Pleuronema marinum.

Pleuronema marinum

We cannot be sure whether the nearby organism is Strobilidium or Strombidium.
