United States of America: Colonial rotifers, tentatively identified as Conochilus from Lake PontchartrainLouisiana: Brachionus calyciflorus also seems to be a cryptic species complex.

The pharynx has a powerful muscular wall and contains tiny, calcified, jaw-like structures called trophiwhich are the only fossilizable parts of a rotifer.

While in other anhydrobionts, such as the brine shrimpthis desiccation tolerance is thought to be linked to the production of trehalose royifera, a non-reducing disaccharide sugarbdelloids apparently cannot synthesise trehalose.

Kinorhyncha mud dragons Priapulida penis worms. Keratella cochlearis is a rotifer.

Many tissues are syncitial and the number of nuclei is fixed. Platyhelminthes flatworms Gastrotricha hairybacks. They have a single testicle and sperm ductassociated with a pair of glandular structures referred to as prostates unrelated to the vertebrate prostate.

In some recent treatments, rotifers are placed with acanthocephalans in a larger clade called Syndermata. This is the marine Class; they are relatively large and live in the gills of crustaceans.


Rotifers are mainly freshwater, but one Class see below is marine and some species can be found world wide, but most commonly in in humid terrestrial habitats. The Rotifera, strictly speaking, are confined to the Bdelloidea and the Monogononta.

Brachionus – Wikipedia

Bdelloid rotifer females cannot produce resting eggs, but many can survive prolonged periods of adverse conditions after desiccation. The cuticle over the foot often forms rings, making it appear segmented, although the internal structure is uniform. One treatment places them in the phylum Rotifera, with three classes: In some species, this is relatively mild, but in others the female may be up to ten times the size of the male.

Some rotifers are free swimming and truly planktonicothers move by inchworming along a substrate, and some are sessileliving inside tubes or gelatinous holdfasts that are attached to a substrate. The cilia set up a water current to bring food particles to the mouth.

Neither form has a foot. In bdelloids, a major cause of the resistance to desiccation, as well as resistance to ionizing radiation, is a highly efficient mechanism for repairing the DNA double-strand breaks induced by these agents. This is carried around by the mother and hatches into a miniature adult. Periodically sexual reproduction takes place.

Any body of standing water is likely to contain rotifers and Keratella cochlearis is probably the commonest and most widespread species in the world. Their cuticle is nonchitinous and is formed from sclerotized proteins. Rotifers are dioecious and reproduce sexually or parthenogenetically. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.


Tecta females can produce typica offspring and vice versa. The shape of the trophi varies between different species, depending partly on the nature of their diet. Hydratina sentabelow, has small toes. In this process, klwsifikasi female rotifer produces an unfertilised egg with a full set of chromosomes.

Author s sorted ascending Filter. In this phase males are absent and amictic females produce diploid eggs by mitosis which develop parthenogenetically into females that are clones of their mothers.

Mixis meiosis is induced by different types of stimulus depending on species. Gosse[1].
