    #lobate going to the right?

    Actually lobates use their lobes for feeding and, like other ctenophores, use their cilia for movement through the water.

    The 'aboral' end with the comb rows/ cilia is on the right, and the lobes are on the left. So this guy is moving left. I too am learning !

    You see how the right end has a 'fuzzy' exterior shape? That is the cilia/comb rows
