Loxophyllum

Post by RogelioMoreno »

On last Saturday I went to an astronomical observation to a place called Punta Chame and I took some marine water.

Here a set of images of Loxophyllum, the body lenght on the second image is around 187 microns.

All with Nikon TE300, 20x/0.75 objective, DIC, flash and Canon T3i mounted on the front port of the TE300.

Fantastic shots Rogelio. We don't get to see much marine life from Panama. These are great and I am looking forward to more.

One of the reasons I asked if you lived close to the ocean. ;)

Hello Rogelio,

nice, clear pictures! I have the feeling that - maybe - the ciliate was under a strong pressure from the cover glass and therefore its shape is not natural. But the advantage of this treatment is that one can see the nuclei very clearly.

Mitch,

Thank you for your comments and asking me to try marine samples.

Later I will post a set of Pleurenoma (it is a photogenic specimen).

Franz,

It was hard to me to ID it because of the shape, I had to ask friends at another forum about the ID.

Maybe it is L. khali: http://protist.i.hosei.ac.jp/pdb/images ... index.html

Thank you for your comments.

Rogelio
