Nitzschia spec.

Nitzschia spec. with large cells. The insets show overlaping of epi- and hypotheca, the girdle band and keel arcs of the fibulate raphe system and a Chlamydomonas like green flagellate. Scale bar indicates 100µm. Digital drawing using 35 frames generating depth of focus, stacked manually.
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.
