No 4 looks like a stray fibre of something like flax (linen). Note the transverse markings which are typical of flax (and hemp), where the material is beaten to separate the fibres following retting.

Hi

Hi ken. Yes I feel the same way about these diatoms. Very interesting arrangements.

Thanks pau. Dic really made my microscopic experience much better. I will surely do enjoy using the technique. And thank you for the forums about mixing dic accessories. They are very informative.
