A range of researchers, including the authors, have successfully used staining techniques [sup][3],[4] to identify this multiflagellated protozoon by means of light microscopy, taking into account a series of morphological characteristics including round-to-ovoid shape (20–60 [micro]m in diameter); a double tuft of flagella inserted at the anterior end; absence of a terminal bar (very typical in bronchial ciliated cells) and a certain plasticity of the cytoplasm; as well as the presence of coarse granules and some phagocytic vacuoles.
