This incredible photomicrograph allows to appreciate the anatomy of the rotifer Testudinella.
Rotifers inhabiting marine environments have been little studied taxonomically and ecologically, and are usually recognized as an inconspicuous taxon.
Testudinella, with about 40 morphospecies considered valid in the recent annotated checklist of rotifers by Segers (2007), is the most species-rich genus in the family Testudinellidae. It is a benthic-periphytic genus of microphagous rotifers primarily inhabiting the littoral of freshwater lakes and ponds [source].
