Caption: Glaucocystis alga. Light micrograph of a colourless Glaucocystis sp. , a chlorophyta alga containing symbiotic Skuljapelta nuda, a type of blue-green algae or cyanobacteria. The two species have become so adapted to its partner that neither can survive without the presence of the other. The Glaucocystis sp. alga provides shelter whilst S. nuda provides food to its host through photosynthesis. Magnification: x250 at 35mm size with phase contrast. Phase contrast images reduce the colour saturation of objects and allows more detail to be seen.
