I found several species in an old wet mount kept in a moisture chamber. The sample came from dry moss growing on the base of a tree in Gooilust, the Netherlands. When the specimens came in the light path of the microscope they retract their filopodia, in a more or less Z-shaped pattern and a large number of papillae are built. Specimens had two vesicular nuclei. Filopodia did anastomose, but more occasionally.


Ecology: Dry moss on trees, Netherlands.






Note the two nuclei.
