Habrotrocha rosa, anterior part dorsoventral view ; this optical transect (median longitudinal section) shows the short buccal tube (double arrow). Because of this short pharyngeal tube this species may be confused with Habrotrocha bidens, but the trophi with the dental formula (DF) 3/3 separate H. rosa from H. bidens (with DF: 2/2). BT: buccal / pharyngeal tube; Mx: mastax with trophi (Tr); Ph: pharynx; TD: trochal discs. (1)
 
 
Habrotrocha rosa, foot with 3 toes and spurs with bulbous base; interspace between spurs(1)
