Uroleptus limnetis is a species of ciliates.

Description[edit]

The organism is green coloured, and has a leaf-like shape. Just like Uroleptus musculus, it is U-shaped and has an elongated body with 3 frontals, and 2-4 rows of ventral cirri. It has no transverse cirri, and its "collar" can extend a short distance along the right side of the body.[1]
