Abstract
Twenty-six axenic strains of holotrichous ciliates were investigated by silver-nitrate impregnation. The only valid genus present was considered to be Tetrahymena and to it were attached four species: - T. pyriformis, T. vorax, T. patula and T. faurei. C. described the life-cycles and discussed the problem of amicronuclear strains. Other material revealed the presence of the genera Colpidium and Glaucoma.
