Abstract
Hitorically, identification and systematics schemes for tintinnid ciliates have largely been based on lorica feature and virtually ignored zooid morphology. However, the olymorphism of this structure due to the life cycle and enviromental conditions is known which makes the identification of tintinnid ciliates problematic. In the 1,200 previously reported tintinnid species,only 20 species are described based on the cytological features, including the ciliary pattern revealed by protargol staining. We here redescribe two further tintinnid species, Eutintinnus spertus (Kofoid & Campbell, 1929) Kofoid & Campbell, 1939 and Favella campanula (Schmidt, 1901) Jorgensen, 1934 based on the lorica as well as cell features. Eutintinnus apertus can be differentiated from its congeners by having only two macronuclear, one dorsal kinety and two posterior kineties. Favella campanula can be separated from Favella ehrenbergii (Claparede & Lachmann, 1858) Jorgensen, 1924 whose infraciliature was recently reported by the number of somatic kienties as well as collar membranelles.
