This was found in my backyard creek. 100 Magnification so its just under 1 mm. It was viewed in a concave slide.
Ok I'm trying to get the file size right Sorrry.

Looks like a Stellate Trichome.

Thanks for the idea, I looked at your suggested Web site. The size seems to be a bit different and the fact that this was found in a water sample may be a problematic. but I'll do some more research of plants around here and see if I can find a match. Thanks again!

Microscopic objects can travel for surprising distances when carried by the wind. Many fall into water.

Oak would be a likely candidate for your Stellate Trichome

I'm with you here 75' - not the first we've seen my friend. They're everywhere, most definitely including water, waste, airborne etc. Decaying plants will result in these being released similar to pollen etc also....

I stand corrected!!! after looking at this most of the night, I found a pyrrosia (fern) that is in this area (in my backyard). that matched my photo very good. Thank you very much! I had a great learning experience.
