Epimastigote

term replacing crithidial stage, to avoid confusion with the insect-parasitizing flagellates of the genus crithidia. In the epimastigote stage the flagellum arises from the kinetoplast alongside the nucleus and emerges from the anterior end of the organism; an undulating membrane is present.

Origin: epi-_ g. Mastix, whip
