Abstract
    This paper deals with the monstrous growth of the blue-green algae feeding ciliate Pseudomicrothorax dubius. The monstrous ciliates mainly appear, when the feed algae (Oscillatoria formosa), which can be found either in an aggregated or in an extended state, are spread. The spreading and with it the monstrous growth can be hastened by the use of Petri dishes made of plastic. The spreading chiefly occurs in consequence of the contact between algae and plastic. The application of the detergent Tween 80 effects a decline of this spreading. The role of the plastic and the algae is discussed with regard to the monstrous growth.
