Caption: Diatom alga. Light micrograph of Pinnularia nobilis, a diatom alga. The Pinnularia genus is found in the surface layers of damp soil, producing food from sunlight by photosynthesis. Diatoms are single-celled algae which produce an intricately patterned, glass-like cell wall, or frustule. The frustule consists of two halves which fit together like the lid and bottom of a box. It is often decorated with rows of tiny holes, known as striae. There are about 10, 000 species of diatom algae in freshwater and marine habitats. Magnification: x160 at 35mm size.
