Description of Bodo saltans

Bodo cells that are about 5 - 6 microns long, somewhat elliptical and often attached to the substrate by the tip of the posterior flagellum. While attached, the flagellum bends quickly so that the cells jerk. Two flagella insert subapically; the anterior flagellum is slightly shorter than the cell and is usually directed backwards, and the non-acronematic posterior flagellum is about 3 times the cell length.
