Current Mood: confusedconfused
I was reviewing my notes for Trichomonas for my lab this week, and noticed a difference between the slides (which were probubly made before the microsope was invented) and the textbooks and manuals I have. Trichomonas vaginalis is still the same, but all my non-parasitic inhabitant slides for comparison are for Trichomonas hominis. All my texts say Pentatrichomonas huminis, so I was wondering, when did this genus get yanked out? Fun with taxonomy, once again. Anyway, let me know if anyone can/bothers to dig this one up.
