Pompholyxophrys punicea
portrait

Pompholyxophrys (pom-folly-zoff-riss) punicea. The cytoplasm of the spherical body is colorless or reddish, often interspersed with colored granules and green or brown food particles. The outer periplast is built up from conspicuous minute colourless spherical granules (perles) arranged in concentric layers. The granules are glass like hollow spheres and arranged in concentric layers to form a compact envelope. The large nucleus is located eccentricly. The straight and pointed pseudopodia are tenuous and indistinct. Individuals are found occasionally in ponds and swamps. This specimen was collected in a bog pond near Konstanz, Germany. The outer sphere of colourless spherical perles can be seen to be lying in concentric layers. Differential interference contrast.   This picture was taken by Martin Kreutz using an Olympus microscope. Image copyright: Martin Kreutz, image used under license to MBL (micro*scope).
