The 'slipper animalcule' named after the resemblance of its pellicle to the shape of a slipper. Popular textbook species of protozoa for illustrating ciliate morphology and behavioural traits. Although the organism is highly motile our cultures often contain sufficiently dense populations for continual observation under the microscope.

Keep cool away from direct sunlight, preferably in a fridge. For an ongoing culture transfer 5-10ml into 150ml of 'hay infusion' medium, sub-culture every 2 weeks.
