world of amoeboid organisms

Microcorycia spec.

I found a single shell in moss from the roof terrace of the Freie Universität Berlin (2016). It is about 28 µm in diameter and resembles in shape Microcorycia penardi, which is however much larger, 78-114 µm.

In 2018 I found many shells in sediment of a cave in Croatia, sampled by Najla Bakovic.
