Abstract

Some hypotrichous ciliates collected from the Han River and the Mountain Kwank were cultured at laboratory. They were identified as Paruroleptus lepisma Wenzel, 1953 and Euplotes aediculatus Pierson, 1943. These two species are reported for the first from Korea. Morphological and biometrical studies of them were carried out by observing both wild and cultured cells and the infraciliature of silver stained specimens. The two speices were redesribed and analyzed biometrically for their taxonomic characters.
