Salt water ciliates

Post by Jean-marc »

Hello,

some new pics as I make a smelly culture of salt water with algua.

Uronychia is identified now, the second ciliate seems to be a Euplotes specimen ?
dimension : 80µm

splanapo 40/0,95 and 100/1,40 with DIC, flash 1/5600e, canon 600D.

These are marvellously sharp, yet they convey a real sense of motion. The second one does seem to be Euplotes, but I am puzzled by the small number of frontal and ventral cirri. Perhaps some are weakly developed and slightly out of the focal plane?

We do not have a clear view of the caudal (and marginal?) cirri, so I am not sure that Diophrys can be ruled out. It is a genus often found in coastal waters.

Hi Charles, thank you,

Yes it is my new yongnuo460II (aka YN460) that replace my old and unrepaired vivitar 285HV.
The YN460 is as powerful as the 285HV, and I am sure that the trigger voltage will not burn my Canon 600D :wink:
