Caption: Merismopedia, scanning electron micrograph (SEM). Merismopedia is a genus of cyanobacteria found in fresh and salt water. It is ovoid or spherical in shape and arranged in rows and flats, forming rectangular colonies held together by a mucilaginous matrix. Species in this genus divide in only two directions, creating a characteristic grid-like pattern. Magnification: x 7000 when printed at 10cm wide.
