Carlos,

I don't know what this is, but it is not Microchlamys. Take a look here: http://www.wunderkanone.de/Amoebas/Misc ... -full.html

Thank you very much Ecki.
I look at the information on the Ferry web page
http://www.arcella.nl/microchlamys-patella
It has some resemblance to the illustrations

Carlos,

Microchlamys looks at first sight like a damaged Arcella. Basically it is like an Arcella with flexible test.

Hallo,
I would assume that the video shows a Hyalosphenia sp.. Perhaps Ferry could check that.

Hi Carlos,

Ernst was fully right with Hyalosphenia cuneata! It is a difficult specimen for photography, because it is always on the run :wink:
