Abstract

Trichodina diaptomi (Ciliophora: Peritrichida: Trichodinidae); epibiont or parasite? In the state of Aguascalientes, Mexico: The ciliate Trichodina diaptomi [1], is recorded moving on the shell (carapace) of Diaptomid copepods: Mastigodiaptomus albuquerquensis [2]. The ciliate measures 50 to 60 microns in diameter, mostly parasitizes freshwater animals and fishes. However, recently there have been other species of micro crustaceans, both cladocerans (Daphnia laevis Birge 1878 and Bosmina huaronensis Delachaux 1918), other copepods Arctodiaptomus dorsalis (Marsh 1907) and Leptodiaptomus siciliodes (Lilljeborg 1889), with the same pattern of coexistence, moving on the carapace of these species.

Keywords: Cladocera; Copepoda; Freshwater; Zooplankton
