These are very small euglena that live in a lorica, a small hard "container" made up of ferric hydroxide and manganese salts. They get around via a long flagellum that extends through a small opening in the lorica.

Hello Charlie,

I'm thinking of developing a list of superlatives with each having a number assigned. Then when you post we can just reply - 3, 7, 13 & 5!

Doing a Google search for images of trachelomonas (or for that matter, anything you post) shows how far in front you are with your shots.

Congratulations (again!)

All the best,
Mike

Thanks Mike and Doug!

Funny how when you've been doing "macro" and low mag images for a while how, at first glance, the really high mag stuff looks comparatively less detailed. It's only when I add the scale bars and realize just how small these things really are, and consider the physical limitations of light microscopy that things get back into perspective.
