New European Stands of Paramecium pentaurelia, Paramecium septaurelia, and Paramecium dodecaurelia, Genetic and Molecular Studies
New stands of rare species of the Paramecium aurelia complex were found in Europe, i.e. P. pentaurelia and P. dodecaurelia in Italy and P. septaurelia in Germany. The species were identified by mating reactions with the standard strains of each species. Their relationships with some other known strains of particular species were studied by classical strain crosses (survival in F1 and F2 generations) and by comparison of RAPD-PCR fingerprints. The presence of the cosmopolitan species P. tetraurelia in Italy was also recorded.
