Field Notes
I was having a challenge finding similar algae that looked like Dasysiphonia but was not Dasysiphonia by using microscope. Also getting the algae flat to look at through a microscope. We took photos with ipad's. I was very exited when we first look at the algae.
Supporting Evidence
Photo of my evidence.
This is not Dasysiphonia because I see multiple cells, not single, and the cells are not long. Magnification 400x
Photo of my evidence.
This is not Dasysiphonia because, I can tell that this has an axle growth, but it is brown and not single cells. Magnification 100x

This is not Dasysiphonia because, it has axle growth but again I can't see the single cells. Magnification 100x

All of these samples have too many cell layers to be Dasysiphonia. Thanks for your work on this project! - Matt Bracken
