|Comments||Some jakobids, as they appear by light microscopy. Note that the cells are drawn in different orientations - Jakoba libera is shown with the ventral side (defined by the groove) on the left. Andalucia incarcerata is shown in ventral view (looking into the ventral groove). In Reclinomonas americana the groove opens upwards (the cell 'reclines' on its dorsal side). Histiona aroides is shown roughly in ventral view. Jakoba libera is drawn in feeding position, in which the hooked portion of the anterior flagellum would adhere to the substrate. Note the loricae of Reclinomonas and Histiona, by which they attach more permanently to the substrate.|
