status

 

Tetrahymena pyriformis (Ehrenberg, 1830)  

Record as endobiont in Ostracods: This species was recorded in Tonnacypris lutaria (Koch, 1838)   found between carapace lamellae and inside limb from Melenci—Bašaid, Danube basin in Serbia ( Nikolić & Karan-Žnidaršič 2005).

Remarks: “ Tetrahymena pyriformis   ” is a complex of at least 14 cryptic species, which can recognized using molecular approach ( Lynn 2008). In such a situation, it is impossible to clarify what representative of family Tetrahymenidae   was found in ostracode host.
