A long thin Closterium (a Desmid)

Post by NikonUser »

Most of the Closterium I see are decidedly curved and wider than this one.
At least 3 spp. similar to this shape: C. rostratum, C. kuetzingii, C. setaceum.
Length 370µ

Quote – Holmes on ‘Entomology’
” I suppose you are an entomologist ? “
” Not quite so ambitious as that, sir. I should like to put my eyes on the individual entitled to that name.
No man can be truly called an entomologist,
sir; the subject is too vast for any single human intelligence to grasp.”
