Clonal cultures of Philaster hiatti (Thompson, 1969) were established from specimens collected at Windley Key, Florida. Ciliates were examined after protargol silver impregnation. A detailed account of stomatogenesis is presented, with emphasis on the development of the opisthe haplokinety. Morphological and morphogenetic observations suggest that the haplokinety of P. hiatti is composed of three distinct segments.
