Phylum Gnathifera:
Habitan en agua, sedimentos, y como parásitos de algunos vertebrados. Con tipo de vida libre, son en su mayoría de menos de 1 mm de largo, con cilios para moverse o recoger alimentos, y tienen mandíbulas características en la garganta. Los rotíferos son, con mucho, las más comunes, incluyendo casi todos los tipos de arena marina.
Los cilios en los rotíferos forman una corona alrededor de la boca. En la mayor parte del cuerpo tiene un pie posterior, que suele tener dos o más dedos y las glándulas adhesivas, que se utiliza para crear vínculos temporales o permanentes. Algunos también tienen antenas sensoriales y ojos simples.

Clase Bdelloidea
Estos rotíferos son exclusivamente femeninos. La mayoría tienen una corona retráctil dividida en dos partes, que parecen ruedas que giran.

John Harris in 1696, and other forms were described by Anton van Leeuwenhoek in 1703. Most rotifers are around 0.1–0.5 mm long (although their size can range from 50 μm to over 2 millimeters), and are common in freshwater environments throughout the world with a few saltwater species; for example, those of genus Synchaeta.
