Description of Rhizomonas setigera

provided by BioPedia
Cells found adhering to detritus, with one flagellum up to 25 microns long. The cell body is 6-20 microns in diameter and often embedded in mucus. Cells may produce elongate pseudopodia. Also referred to as Solenicola setigera.

Solenicola

provided by wikipedia EN

Solenicola setigera is a species of marine stramenopile, and the only species classified within the genus Solenicola.[1]

The species ranges between 4–7 µm in diameter and has a complex feeding strategy. It’s ecological role within the marine planktonic food chain is generally as a grazer, feeding on photoautotrophic diatoms. It is a parasite of the species Leptocylindrus mediterraneus. S. setigera will grow on the frustule, the protective shell made of silica, of L. mediterraneus alongside the cyanobacteria Synechococcus, which it may also eat. S. setigera combines herbivorous grazing, parasitism, and predation into its survival strategy.[2]

In 2013, the genus was placed in the family Solenicolidae.[3]
