Macrocilia with numerous shafts from the lips of the ctenophore Beroe
The maerocilia are 6 to 10 /xm thick and 50 to 60 jam long. Each consists of 2000 to 3000 shafts, of the typical 9 + 2 pattern, which are arranged in a hexagonal array within a single membrane. The whole macrocilium beats like a single cilium, inward with reference to the mouth, and with antiplectic metachronal waves.
