In addition, the bristles of the corona are sensitive to touch, and there are also a pair of tiny sensory pits lined by cilia in the head region. Keratella cochlearis Kellicottia longispina and Keratella cochlearis Scientific classification Kingdom: Baynes, Spencer and W. However, the composition of rotifers generally does not satisfy the nutritional requirements of fish larvae,  and large amounts of research have been invested in improving the lipid, vitamin and mineral composition of rotifers to better meet the requirements of fish larvae   .
Keratella cochlearis is a rotifer.
In many species, such as Testudinellathe cilia around the mouth have disappeared, leaving just two small circular bands on the head. Evolution; International Journal of Organic Evolution. Limnology and Oceanography 39 1 Some of these develop into male rotifers. In the main, reproduction in this species is by parthenogenesis.
The foot can also be drawn into the cuticular covering. The eyes are simple in structure, sometimes with just a single photoreceptor cell. As the spring advanced, the spine shortens and by July it is very short or non-existent. De Smet, W H Micrognathozoa Limnognathia Syndermata Rotifera wheel animals Acanthocephala thorny-headed worms.
In Monogononta the nuclear DNA content 2C in eight different species rotifea four different genera ranged almost fourfold, klasifi,asi 0. This page was last edited on 12 Decemberat They move by creeping along surfaces, aided by the foot, or by swimming through the water with the beating of the coronal cilia providing propulsion.
In the great majority of rotifers, however, this has evolved into a more complex structure. The anterior corona of cilia is used for movement and feeding.
Articles with ‘species’ microformats. Rotifers are an important part of the freshwater zooplankton, being a major foodsource and with many species also contributing to the decomposition of soil organic matter.

In suspension feeders, the trophi are covered in grinding ridges, while in more actively carnivorous species, they may be shaped like forceps to help bite into prey. Their taxonomy is currently in a state of flux. In the winter, most individuals have a long spine at the posterior end. Rotifers may be in competition with cladocera and copepods for planktonic food sources.

Dicranophorus grandis Ehrenberg, Valid Name: A pair of protonephridia open into a bladder that drains into the cloaca. In this phase males are absent and amictic females produce diploid eggs by mitosis which develop parthenogenetically into females that are clones of their mothers.
