The optical cross section through the cell shows pyrenoids. In the pyrenoids, the cell produces the storage substance starch, which is deposited as a shell around them. The nucleus (light disk) is located in the middle of the cell.

Sample from wetland Lauchseemoor, Fieberbrunn, Tyrol, Austria. Sampling date 06/2023. The image was built up using several photomicrographic frames with manual stacking technique. Images were taken using Zeiss Axioplan with Olympus OM-D M5 MKII.
