Twelve OTUs identified as Blepharisma, Mesodinium, Didinium, Haptoria, uncultured Scuticociliatia, uncultured Peritrichia, Cryptocaryon, Halteria, uncultured Oligotrichia, Oxytricha, Euplotes, and uncultured Choreotrichia had a zero GAST distance, indicating that they were identical to existing sequences in public databases.
Sequences analyses of the small subunit rRNA gene confirm of oligotrich ciliates sensu lato and support the monophyly of the subclasses Oligotrichia and Choreotrichia (Ciliophora, Spirotrichea).
