Abstract
    The fine morphology of the trophi of Pompholyx sulcata and nine species of Testudinella (Rotifera, Monogononta, Flosculariacea, Testudinellidae) was studied by scanning electron microscopy. The number of unci teeth and arched rami scleropili, and the shape of the major unci teeth and fulcrum are considered to be reliable additional characters for identification.
