Allas (a-lass), rarely reported gliding flagellate from soils, dividing. Division in most flagellates begins with a doubling of the n umber of flagella, and then a division furrow splits the cell longitudinally. Contractile vacuoles (usually there are two per cell) are the clear inclusions near the point of flagellar insertion. Phase contrast.
