Title:Recent Observations on Neck Extensions in Folliculinids (Protozoa)
Authors:Matthews, Donald C.

Citation:Matthews DC. 1964. Recent observations on neck extensions in folliculinids (protozoa). Pac Sci 18(2): 229-235.
Abstract:Despite species variations , the process of folliculinid
lorica formation is fundamentally similar
(Penard, 1919; Andrews, 1923; Faure-Fremiet,
1932; Dewey, 1939; and Das, 1947). In all a
motile, nonfeeding stage becomes attached, secretes
a sac and neck, and gradually metamorphoses
into a sessile feeding stage characterized
by peristomal lobes.
