Algae ID

I'm wondering if anyone could help me out and ID this algae? Collected near Baltic sea shore recently, 10x objective.

Mougeotia sp. ? I understand the Baltic is a canary in a coalmine and new or unknown species are frequent.

PS Mougeotia is freshwater, the Baltic Sea is almost fresh in some areas.
