In contrast to the corona of the flosculariid rotifers (Beauchampia, Floscularia, , Limnias, Ptygura, Sinantherina), which have a closed circular corona, the corona of the Conochilidae is open, i.e.: horseshoe-like. The arrows mark the ends of the trochus; the arrowheads point to the ends of the cingulum. Between trochus and cingulum is the circumapical band with short cilia.
