Abstract: New strains of Paramecium quadecaurelia were found in Namibia, Africa. Previously, this species from the P. aurelia complex was known only from Australia, Emily Gap. Namibian strains were identified by mating reaction; their relationship with the Australian strain was studied by classical strain crosses (survival in F1 and F2 generations) and by comparison of cytosol-type hsp70 gene sequences. Phylogenetic trees of the Namibian and Australian strains of P. quadecaurelia and the other species of the P. aurelia complex were generated based on the maximum-likelihood method.
