Field Notes
The most challenging part about this is trying to get a picture of the cells and get pictures that were full and clear to see. The research I did was very fun and interesting because I saw things in the red alage that I had never seen before, for instance in some samples I found about 50-100 cells from one side to the other. None of my samples were Dasysiphonia because they had more than one cell and the red algae did not have shepherds hooks.
Supporting Evidence
Photo of my evidence.
I honestly do not know what the magnification of this is. I do not think this is Dasysiphonia because it has multiple cells across a single branch. I also don’t think this is Dasysiphonia because it doesn't have a shepherds hooks anywhere.

Along with the first one I am not positive what magnification this is at. I also think that this is not Dasysiphonia because it has more than one cell across one branch. It also doesn't have any shepherds hooks.

Yet again I do not know what the magnification is in this photo. In this photo you can’t really see the cell’s but I know this is not Dasysiphonia because it doesn't have a shepherds hook and the way the branching goes it doesn't look like what you would find/see in Dasysiphonia.

Good call! This has flat blades, and it is definitely not Dasysiphonia.
