Euglena

(yū-glē'nă),
A widespread genus of photosynthesizing free-living fresh water flagellates (family Euglinidae).
[eu- + G. glēnē, eyeball]

Euglena

a genus of large, green flagellates (division Euglenophyta) that is common in both fresh and salt waters. Euglenoids produce a polysaccharide storage molecule called PARAMYLUM and, (unlike other flagellates), do not possess a cell wall, but produce a flexible PELLICLE instead.
