Darbyshirella species

 

I found this Darbyshirella species in an 8 weeks old wet preparation made from material from Cuba. It came from moss on a tree in a rain forest in the Sierra Maestre. After eight weeks five specimens were attached to the cover glass.

 

This reticulum is relatively small compared with the one above.
The same reticulum in phase contrast.
About 20 nuclei are present.
 
Specimen wit slowly retracting filopodia.
 
Cyst, with about 20 nuclei
