Arcella vulgaris?

Post by RogelioMoreno »

I think the following subject is Arcella vulgaris.

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

I think the following is a bottom view:

The following are side views, I can see two macronucleus in some:

Hi Rogelio,

The side views are not clear as cross sections. I don't think it is Arcella vulgaris. You can judge yourself by looking at http://www.arcella.nl/key-to-Arcella

It has been a year since I have found any arcella here, and now I am finding them again in my samples. I am wondering if they are like flowers and come around in the spring?

I have never seen any of them in such detail though. Especially #2.

Now I agree with you, I do not think it is Arcella vulgaris.

Thank you very much for the link, it is very useful.
