Re: Vucetich (1983) by Stefan LuketaStefan Luketa, 13 Mar 2017 17:42

Hello everyone,

I am looking for these two papers:

1) Vucetich MC. 1983. Contribucion al conocimiento del genero Quadrulella Cockerell, 1909 (Rhizopoda: Testaceolobosa) en la Argentina. Limnobios. 2(7): 526-532.

2) Lopretto EC, Vucetich MC. 1997. A new species of the genus Quadrulella Cockerell, 1909 (Rhizopoda: Testacea). Neotropica (La Plata). 43: 3-5.

Does anybody have these papers? My e-mail address is moc.oohay|atekulnafets#moc.oohay|atekulnafets

Thank you very much in advance.

With best regards,
Stefan Luketa

Hi, you can find the link in the section Twilight zone - Outstanding Mysteries. I look forward to your comments and suggestions.

Dear Edward,
thank you very much for sharing the papers (and introducing me to the Dropbox world).

Hi Anna,

I have posted these references on dropbox for you. If anyone else wants these (or others) let me know.

If you have any problem with the French let me know.

Dear colleagues,
I would be really grateful if you could check my identification of certain testate amoebae species, which I found in a peat of Kotelnice poor fen. This species - Cryptodifflugia pusilla - was dominant in one development phase of studied mire that was reconstructed as a forested transitional mire with a mix of tree (mainly spruce, less pine, alder and fir), lower groundwater level (DWT around 11 cm; based on TA), lower pH and nutrients (pH around 4, Ellenberg indicator value for nutrient availability around 2; based on plant macrofossils).

Thank you in advance for any comments!

Best regards,
Anna Šímová

The link for picture will add here Daniel Lahr (Thanks a lot!), because I'm not allowed to publish links on this site.

Thanks for the info Dan and good luck with the organisation.

Excellent idea the ISoP sponsored student award!

Can't wait to come to this meeting!

I'm sending it to you.

Dear all,

Many of you have been asking about the meeting. We are running a little late with arrangements but the meeting will occur form September 12 to 15 in Ilhabela, SP, Brazil. We will also have a ISoP sponsored student award that should help pay some students (at the same time giving them an awesome title on their CVs).

My expectations were to have the website and registrations up and running by April 1st, but this will not happen. Hopefully by mid-April we will be in business.

But do not despair, the meeting will happen and I do hope to see all of you here.


Pseudopod your life.

It's a somewhat late reply, but I fully agree with Leo. Recently I've found a number of shells of Schwabia. Living cells showed filopodia, which confirms Jung's opinion that Schwabia might be related to Pseudodifflugia.

Thanks for your comments Dan and Ferry. We are in the process of trying to get some SEM images of the microfossil along with some other things from the Antarctic Peninsula here at Exeter, but it is taking longer than we hoped. We have no information about any potential pseudopodia unfortunately - we have never seen the amoeba (if that is what it is!) alive, despite relatively high concentrations of it in certain samples. In addition, I cannot remember seeing an example of this test with any remnant amoeba still inside either. This has actually led us to question whether it is a testate amoeba at all - Ralf Meisterfeld certainly seemed skeptical that it was when looking at a sample at ISTA7. Obviously the logistical complications of working on the AP prevent us from popping out to get more sample!! I have some fossil sample that I can send you, Ferry, I will email you now.

well put, it may indeed be Cryptodifflugia or related.

Pseudopod your life.
