Twisty diatom and [perhaps] silicoflagellate

Post by Macro_Cosmos »

"Suriella spiralis", said to also be a bioindicator, from Italy. 100x, DIC.

In a strew slide I received, I think it's freshwater fossil diatoms from Germany, I found this spiky thingy. 100x, brightfield.
I think it's a silicoflagellate.

Hope I'm allowed to plug my Instagram, 2 uploads a week.

Thanks for viewing!

Any chance of making a stereo pair of the S. spiralis? It seems an excellent candidate!
