Description

found in marina of Great Salt Lake. Similar to observation from the breakwaters of the Great Salt Lake
http://www.inaturalist.org/observations/1755198
but this one seems to have more chlorophyll in it, which may be from there being a lot more things to eat in the marina sample.

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.

No range data available.
