I hope I am not a pain in the (you know what).
I would ID this as Coelosphaerium but I see other references to Woronichinia. Could someone help me out here? 200x HMC Nikon Optiphot

Hello Grant,

I agree with John

Here is a part of the "The freshwater algal flora of the british isles"

Hope it could help you


Best regards

If separation is justified, Coelosphaerium is not supposed to have aerotopes. So this one would then not be Coelosphaerium in any case.
I agree with Dominique, W. naegeliana is the most obvious choice.
