Meridion circulare

Post by Bernd »

This nearly circular colony of the diatom Meridion circulare, which has a diameter of about 110 µm, was found in water sampled from a flooded meadow.

That is simply an incredible picture Bernd. What a beautiful creature. Do they form a full circle?

You know I have seen these before but never bothered to look them up just to see what they were exactly. Really a very nice image Bernd, thanks :D

Hi Doug,

sometimes they form spirals, but not full circles.
