Rhabdostyla inclinans: This image shows the anterior part of the oligochaete Nais sp. that is infested by the peritrich ciliate Rhabdostyla inclinans. (The arrowhead points to one of the other ectoparasites: the rotifer Cephalodella parasitica. The arrow points to the rotifer Albertia naidis, which lives as an endoparasite in the intestinum of Nais sp.). (2)
