Protaspis
portrait

Protaspis (pro-tass-piss) is a medium-sized heterotrophic flagellate. Two flagella emerge close to each other from a point behind the apex of the cell and on the ventral side. The anterior flagellum is typically shorter than the posterior flagellum. The ventral side may give rise to pseudopodia which can enclose food - such as diatoms. Phase contrast microscopy.  This image was taken by Dawn Moran and David Patterson from cultures and samples collected from the Ross Sea in Antarctica by Rebecca Gast.
