Description

Found in a very small collection vial containing a sample of Ficopomatus enigmaticus collected from the Petaluma River, my local brackish tidal slough.

I saw some miniature organisms swimming in the vial after I had changed some water out and immediately guessed that they were a species of stentor based on their movement.

However, I was surprised as I had never seen any stentor species tolerate any salinity throughout my years of personally cultivating various stentor species in captivity.

Research showed me that at least one species, S. multiformis, can survive in brackish water. I have this ID'd these specimens as such due to this characteristic as well as their pigmentation.

They have a lovely blue coloration, which creates an amusing superficial resemblance to the larger S. coerleus-- the poster child for the genus and my personal favorite protozoan to cultivate.

The first 7 images are at 100x magnification. Images 8 and 9 are 40x, and images 10 and 11 are without any magnification. The last image is just the sample I found them in.

I would say that these protists are about 2-3 millimeters when fully extended.

Description

It looked like it there was a mastax moving around in the center (see gif). It also seemed to have fixed "tentacles" that ciliated structures (coronas?) were pulsating around.

It never moved from this spot, so I don't know if it's a little smashed or if this is the actual anatomy.

I'm a bit stumped, to be honest, so my initial ID is probably way off.

Collected from detritus that was on free-floating aquatic plants in a freshwater reservoir.
