Nebela tincta f. galeata, 144 and 142 µm, Haaksbergen

 

Nebela tincta f. galeata Jung, 1936

Diagnosis: The test is wide pyriform, with a lateral keel about 5 µm wide, laterally compressed, with a small lateral pore on each side. The test is composed of small oval particles likely obtained from preys (i.e. euglyphid testate amoebae). The aperture is oval, linear.

Dimensions: Length: 140-150 µm. My measurements: 130-146 µm long.

Ecology: Dry mosses, Haaksbergen.

Remarks: This species resembles Nebela aliciae, which is smaller. It is well possible that shells in other populations have larger or smaller dimensions.
