Notes on the Ciliate Boveria stevensi Issel from Galeomma turtoni Sowerby at Plymouth

  • D. L. Mackinnon and H. N. Ray (a1)


The little bivalve mollusc Galeomma turtoni is not very common of the coast of South Devon; but two specimens were brought in while we were working at the Marine Biological Laboratory last August, and when we examined them we found that the branchiæ and mantle cavity were aswarm with a small colourless ciliate.
