The colourless flagellate Discocelis saleuta, a new genus from marine sediments, has been studied by light microscopy and single-cell sectioning for electron microscopy. The cell is discshaped and possesses an anterior velum and two anteriorly inserted unequal flagella. The cell body periphery and the velum are supported by ribbons of microtubules. Three flagellar roots, each of which comprises relatively few microtubules, arise from the flagellar basal bodies. Two of these roots run posteriorly under the ventral cell membrane, whereas the third root mainly runs along the posterior edge of the velum. The cell is further characterized by a microbody-like paranuclear organelle, and by a row of extrusomes bordering the cell periphery. Mitochondria have short tubular cristae. This minute flagellate adheres tightly to sand grains. The ultrastructure is unlike that of any well circumscribed higher order taxon, and the new genus is consequently placed incertae sedis in the kingdom Protista.
