Abstract

To study the morphology of rumen ciliates from the subfamily ophryoscolecinae from rumen of goat (Capra hircus) rumen samples were collected. The present paper deals with the study of ciliates from the genus Ophryscolex. O. purkeynjei, Stein (1858) recorded first time from the rumen of goat in India and occurrence of Ophryscolex caudatus, Eberlein 1895, O. caudatus, f. bicoronatus, O. caudatus, f. tricoronatus, is reported. Morphology of all the species with variations is described and data of body dimensions are recorded first time in India from the rumen of goat from the specimens taken at random (n = 20) from different slides and compared with earlier reports.
