This is Vorticella that I have found in a local pond yesterday. I have never seen a variation of Vorticella that includes symbiotic algae. I'm not sure what species it is, perhaps Vorticella chlorellata. Left:darkfield, 10x objective. Right: brightfield, 25x objective, 4 images stacked with CombineZ.

Absolutely stunning images Piotr Very Happy I have never seen a Vorticella like these anywhere, even in photographs. A very unique and interesting capture here. I am a little envious, great photos Very Happy

Nice images Piotr! I also found them recently. They tend to stick together and form a sphere!

Piotr... very nice pictures! I've never seen these before. They would certainly stand out in a crowd of vorticella. I'd love to see some myself some day.

Finding certain microorganisms is often looking for the right type of waterplants. I found mine in water with Utricularia (bladderworts). Squeezing these waterplants may provide organisms like this!

Charlie,

I found these guys on a plant that I think is Eurasian Watermilfoil ( Myriophyllum), in a very shallow pond. I think the plant is considered a weed. I have found a following statement - Technical Information about Myriophyllum spicatum (Eurasian Watermilfoil):

Quote:

Eurasian watermilfoil interferes with recreational activities such as swimming, boating, fishing and water skiing. In Washington, private and government sources spend about $1,000,000 per year on Eurasian watermilfoil control. Other states and provinces (Minnesota, Wisconsin, Vermont, New York, and British Columbia) spend similar amounts per year to control Eurasian watermilfoil infestations.
