Light micrograph of a whitefish cell undergoing a mitotic cell division, where two daughter cells with equal & identical chromosomes are produced by cytoplasmic cleavage of the parent cell. The cell is in metaphase, a stage where the chromosomes appear dark red, aligned at the centre of the mitotic spindle, the structure that mediates their movement and separation as mitosis progresses. Magnification: x315 at 35mm size. Reference: MICROCOSMOS, figure 6.23b, page 122.
