Description

I found this organism in the water of a pond at my high school. It had pointed spikes coming out of all sides when I looked at it under a microscope. It gets darker the closer you look to the center of the organism. This photo was taken under a microscope. Photos taken by Kevin Morris.

Description

This green and plant like protist was found in a sample of water that was taken from a pond behind the school. At first glance, it appears to be a cell that is undergoing mitosis, however, it is not and that is just its natural shape. I believe the correct identification for this protist is Cosmarium circulare, however, this identifcation does not appear when searched in the iNaturalist database.

Description from Wikipedia

The Charophyta are a division of green algae, that includes the closest relatives of the embryophyte plants. In some groups, such as conjugating green algae, flagellate cells do not occur. The latter group does engage in sexual reproduction, and motility does not involve flagella, since they are totally lacking. Flagellate cells in the form of sperm are found in stoneworts (Charales) and Coleochaetales.
