Image of Histionidae

Description:

Histiona (hist-ee-own-a) is a jakobid flagellate related to Jakoba. As with other excavates, there is a ventral groove and the flagella insert at the head of the groove. There are two flagella, one lying in the groove and one curving outwards from the point of insertion. Unlike most other excavates, Histiona sits in a stalked lorica when feeding. This is a lorica and an enclosed but vacated cyst. Phase contrast.
