The method of division of Trepomonas agilis in culture

  • Ann Bishop (a1)


Trepomonas Agilis, first described by Dujardin (1841), is commonly found in ponds rich in decaying organic matter, and in infusions. This flagellate was well known to early workers (Stein, 1878; Kent, 1880–2; Bütschli, 1878, 1889; Klebs, 1892; and others), but owing to its rapid movements they had difficulty in studying its structure and counting its flagella. More recently Wenyon & Broughton-Alcock (1924) found a Trepomonas occurring, together with a species of Bodo, coprozoically in a mucous stool from a human being suffering from colitis.
