Hi Anna,

I'm quite sure that what you observed would have been called Phryganella acropodia by many ecologists. I have frequently observed very similar tests ca. 30µm diameter together with larger ones ca. 50µm. Depending on which key you use they may even be included in the Cyclopyxis arcelloides-type.

Of course if you have living specimens with visible pseudopods you will know if they are Phryganella or not based on the pseudopod morphology. Empty tests are more tricky.

It is quite clear that these general morphotypes likely include several taxa. It would be very useful to conduct a study combining morphometrics, DNA barcoding and ecological observations to clarify this maze…

Anna Šímová would like help to identify a Cryptodifflugia species

1 is most likely the egg capsule of a worm.
2 is the case of a bdelloid rotifer (genus Habrotrocha most likely).
3 is Euglypha
4 Trinema
5 most likely Phryganella (if the aperture is invaginated it would be Cyclopyxis)
6 Trigonopyxis
7 unclear, is the aperture on the top left?

For more precise identification it would be helpful to have the sizes.

Dear all,
Up to genus level I could identify…..I need up to species level identification…anybody can help?
Bindu

For all it is worth - not sure if you need identifications below genus.

82-18a is a Nebela (Anush can help further)
82-18 Euglypha
82-8a Trinema
72h Euglypha


Pseudopod your life.

Hi all,

A new colleague, Bindu, is requesting some help identifying species from India. They can be found here:

Hi,
I am posting some images of moss inhabitant rhizopods from Western Ghats (a hot spot of India) for which I got confusion.
