Dicranophorus Video No. 1
Dicranophorus species are found in littoral and benthic habitats. Some are predatory; D. isothis has been observed attacking the cladoceran Chydorus. The trophi (chitinous jaws) can be thrust partly out of the mouth to capture prey. Dicranophorus belongs to the largest class of rotifers, the Monogononta , species that have only one ovary.
