I have never seen this desmid before. I think it might be Staurastrum brachiatum. Any other ideas?

This is the same file I was having the problem with trying to attach. I resized it in my Photoshop/Zerene stand-alone computer and reentered it in my Windows 10 Internet computer and it worked.

Hi Mike,

I do not think that this is a desmid, but a xanthophyte of the genus Pseudostaurastrum.
