Description of Karyorelictea

Postciliodesmatophoran ciliates, long, vermiform, flattened; many genera have one barren surface; extremely contractile, except Loxodida; two to many macronuclei contain approximately (sometimes slightly more than) the diploid amount of DNA; macronuclei form by division of micronuclei, then differentiate; the micronuclei divide, apparently by eumitosis.
