Comments This species, Notosolenus ostium one of the more easily recognised and common species (the deep longitudinal groove is the diagnostic feature). There are two flagella arising within the flagellar pocket, one projects out the front and is easy to see, the other is usually short, directed to the rear, and difficult to see - except perhaps when the cells are turning.

This page is a Tree of Life Branch Page.

Each ToL branch page provides a synopsis of the characteristics of a group of organisms representing a branch of the Tree of Life. The major distinction between a branch and a leaf of the Tree of Life is that each branch can be further subdivided into descendent branches, that is, subgroups representing distinct genetic lineages.

For a more detailed explanation of the different ToL page types, have a look at the Structure of the Tree of Life page.
