@davidfbird check this out. The cyanomorph (Dendriscocaulon) which has been there for years finally has Ricasolia (the green algae morph) lobules growing from it! Troy was pumped.

Mag 100x (1), 400x (2-4)

  • A water sample was taken on 09/03/2023 from pond-edge using a 10µ dip net to enrich for microbes. Air temp. 80°F.

Test of a lobose amoeboid, a relatively large specimen of N. corona. The aperture is ~120µ wide, For some reason, I kept hearing the "Ride of the Valkyries" in my head, and eventually surfacing in an audible humming, while editing these photos.

Video: https://youtu.be/UMJgt_Zawao

Sampling location: The soil sample was collected from the bank of a pond on the Bagaryak River, near the water. The soil was wet but gradually dried out.
Date and time of collection: September 8, 2023
The sample was stored in a sealed glass container at room temperature.
On October 23, 2023, at 11 AM, a small amount of this soil was mixed with clean water.
Date and time of observation: October 28, 2023, at 11 AM
All images and videos are of the same organism.

Pseudopediastrum boryanum (Turpin) E.Hegewald 2005

Diagnosis of the organism observed:
• coenobium star-shaped, flat and single-layered
• diameter coenobium up to 65 µm
• coenobium of 32 cells
• marginal cells ~10 µm
• inner cells concentrically arranged without intercelluar spaces (Except for one intercellular space, which I think is an individual feature of the observed cenobium)
• marginal cells bilobed with a notch between the lobes
• single pyrenoid
• small warts are present on the contact surfaces of the cells
• a delicate pattern on the surface of the cell
