Abstract

The morphology of three marine colepid ciliates, spec. nov., spec. nov. and (Claparède Lachmann, 1858) Bergh, 1881, isolated from Chinese coastal waters, was investigated. spec. nov. may be separated from its congeners by the structure of its armour plates, each of which may have up to five reniform windows. spec. nov. is characterized by its large body with broad anterior end and by having 10–12 long, sharp posterior spines. New data and an improved diagnosis are supplied for (Claparède Lachmann, 1858) Bergh, 1881, which has a spindle-shaped body, about 16 ciliary rows and a single adoral organelle. Sequence similarities with other available colepid species were determined.
