not certain it is that species...I identified to Epistylus, but this was the only species listed and no option to just use genus

Clase Heterotrichea
Tienen cilios llamadados membranelas a lo largo de la parte frontal de la boca. Estos están involucrados en la recolección de alimentos, principalmente bacterias y pequeñas algas o protozoos, y también a menudo en el movimiento . El resto de la célula está cubierta con cilios simples en filas.

Spirostomum - Gusano Ciliado
Son muy parecidos a los gusanos, pero, no lo son, tienen la boca en un lado y una gran vesícula de expulsión de agua en la parte posterior. El cuerpo es flexible y puede contraerse.
Estos incluyen algunos de los ciliados más grandes, llegando hasta 2-4 mm, pero otras especies son muy pequeñas.

Description from Wikipedia

The ciliates are a group of protozoans characterized by the presence of hair-like organelles called cilia, which are identical in structure to eukaryotic flagella, but typically shorter and present in much larger numbers with a different undulating pattern than flagella. Cilia occur in all members of the group (although the peculiar Suctoria only have them for part of the life-cycle) and are variously used in swimming, crawling, attachment, feeding, and sensation.
