Phacus is a genus of unicellular protists, of the phylum Euglenozoa (also known as Euglenophyta). They are light-green and are commonly found in freshwater pools, propelling themselves by gyrating their bodies. They have a single flagellum which is often as long as the Phacus’ body. Euglenid, with plastids, rigid, flattened cells, most species very flat […] read more

Paramecium (parr-ə-mee-sh(ee-)əm, /ˌpærəˈmiːʃⁱəm/[1] or parr-ə-mee-see-əm, /ˌpærəˈmiːsiəm/) is a genus of unicellular ciliated protozoa, commonly studied as a representative of the ciliate group.Paramecia are widespread in freshwater, brackish, and marine environments and are often very abundant in stagnant basins and ponds. Because some species are readily cultivated and easily induced to conjugate and divide, it has […] read more
