Nikon S type microscope
brightfield
40X objective
10X photoeyepiece
Canon 10 D

A fun sample of the variety of forms that the capillitium take in the differant species that produce them.

In the upper image spikes can be seen coming out of the rope like capitillitium. Not present in the previous single sample posted earlier.

The center image has a remarkable spiral to it if you look closely at the left hand vertical section. Knobs to the right, then facing you and then to the left terminating at the three sided "loop" in the center. Certainly no single hair-like strand here!

The lower image is extremely complex in its rings, half rings "Y" junctions and four sided loops.

Sorry for the lack of species names at this time. Don't want to make any errors.

Walt

Walter... really fascinating. The lower two look like some type of intricate gold jewelry work, complete with diamonds!

Some really nice photographs there Walt, really nice! Very Happy I need to do some images like these myself the next time I get the chance. I have not studied the microscopic features as much as I should in these little organisms, so your photographs are indeed an inspiration to do so. Nice work. Wink

Well guys, glad you enjoyed them. There is always a period of anticipation when you discover a new capillitium bearing myxo as to what shapes you will see. Nature is amazing in her variety.
