Here two pictures of Apocarchesium sp, I found this very rare genus on my sample from lake Miraflores.

We can see the normal zooids, macrozooid, microzooid and contractile stalk.

Matchless! Very interesting details on the stalk.

Rogelio, I know you contacted W. Foissner about your previous encounter with this genus. Have you learned more, since then?

Thank you very much for your comments!

All the pictures with Nikon TE300 microscope, plan apo 20x/0.75 objective, DIC, flash and Canon T3i mounted on the front port of the TE300.

Bruce, Foissner confirmed that the specimen is Apocarchesium genus; but to know specie I have to do DNA test. :cry:
