Adult Suctoria are typically predatory and unciliated. They fall into the Ciliate group because they produce one or several ciliated ‘swarmers’ by exogenous, internal, or evaginative budding.
Swarmers have a short existence. They lose cilia, metamorphose into adults and anchor themselves to the substratum. The adult looks similar to a tulip with tentacles.
