Two macronuclear nodules with a single micronucleus in between. Contractile vacuole shown as terminal, but described as subterminal. Extrusomes broadly fusiform, 3 µm long, scattered in cytoplasm and possibly also attached to oral bulge. Somatic ciliary pattern Litonotus -like; about 6 right kineties.

Distribution. This species was reported from soils with dense plant covers near Javorina in the Tatra National Park ( Rosa 1957) and from organic mud of activated sludge plants in the town of Bratislava ( Matis 1988).
