Two flagella arising from large anterior depression, anterior flagellum extending in front of the cell with a long sweeping curve, the posterior flagellum trailing behind. The nucleus lies near the cell center, adjacent to the base of the flagella, a rod or bar lies against one anterior side of the nucleus.
