Higher magnification of cell zone with nucleus. Left the contractile vacuole, then food vacuoles to the right of the CV. The nucleus shows his scattered nucluolus beneath the nuclear membrane (parietal arranged).

The specimen was gathered in a tiny freshwater pond at the island of Hiddensee (Baltic Sea, Germany) which shows a fascinating biodiversity of naked and testate amoebae. Images were taken using Zeiss Standard with Olympus C7070 CCD camera.
