Telaepolella tubasferens Lahr, Kubik, Gant, Grant, Anderson and Katz, 2012

Diagnosis: With characteristics of the genus. Locomotive form usually 50-300µat widest breadth. Capable of producing a large multinucleated form up to 500µwith hundreds of nuclei. Nuclei with undulating margin and an irregularly shaped, somewhat denser nucleolus. Stationary form is flat with thin hyaline sheet that may be broad and wide or slender with many lacunae. Presence of floating form. Produces at least two types of cysts: round with regular outline and non-round with irregular shape. Round cysts may have thin or thick walls. Round, thin-walled cysts remain viable at least for six months.
Etymology: tubasferens. Gr. tuba – trumpet, horn; ferens – bearer, in reference to the trumpet-shaped, microtubular tapered structures present in the cytoplasm.
Type material: The mono-eukaryotic culture deposited at ATCC©, number 50593„¢
