Amazing picture. I'd never see this kind of organism under the microscope and it looks great. Thanks for posting it.

Thank you Pau! I like their microscopy, especially the ornamentation. :D
The spheres are reticulated spores. The tubes are capillitium.

Hi Darwin. Very nice job on this image. I worked with these many many years back and hope to again in the near future. I know how difficult it is to tease material from the myxo and not make a mess on the slide. The spore detail is excellent. Did you do a stack?

Please call me Dieter :lol:

Yes, it is stacked! Wasn't easy because the spores kept moving. :smt047

Thanks all for the comments!
