Ciliophora- Stentor roeseli 

Organisms belonging to Phylum Ciliophora are protozoans who are solitary, fresh water organisms which use cilia to move, feed, or both.  Each organism has a larger macronucleus as well as several smaller micronuclei, but has no true cell wall.

The Ciliophora use a form of sexual reproduction called conjugation in which some of the micronuclei are exchanged between the two individuals involved.

Examples of organisms found in the Phylum Ciliophora include paramecium.
