Caption: Micrasterias. Light micrograph of the desmid Micrasterias sp. The desmids are a group of freshwater unicellular green algae characterised by their beautifully shaped cell walls and symmetrical shapes. Micrasterias are part of the placoderm desmids where each cell is divided into two semi-cells joined by the narrow region known as the isthmus (seen at centre). Small pores are seen on the cell wall through which mucilage is secreted. This allows the algae to stick and glide. Magnification: x75 at 35mm size.
