Description of Codosiga botrytisCells are 3-5 x 5-15 microns long; cells are ovoid or spherical with posterior thin stalk. The cell body, and a small part of the stalk, is enclosed in a thin lorica which is barely visible in the light microscope. Two or more cells may be attached by short individual stalks to a common stalk. The cells may break away from the stalk and swim freely; in this state numerous short thin pseudopodia radiate from the cell posterior.
