Diatom from Pesacola, Florida

#1 Post by MicroBob » Sun Dec 08, 2019 6:54 pm

Hi together,
here a colourful interpretation of a diatom from Pensacola, Florida, girdle band view.
I originally thought to use it for a good-bye card for a group member who leaves for age reasons and tried to pick up his image style in a way.

Very attractive image + most interesting diatom. Do you have an id for it?

Hi Glen,
it might be an Odontella or Triceratium.
My identification library has more gaps than books in it. I just got proper ID books for european diatoms. This usually is very pricey stuff.

This diatom material from Pensacola is really nice and quite exotic for me as a german. I think about making another group meeting on diatoms and might select this material for the slide making if there is enough available of it. May be some kind of world tour in diatom slides or so.
