An update on the swan mussel article
by Mike Samworth
The glochidium larva of a swan mussel under crossed
For those who read my article in March
on the swan mussel larvae, I can now update you. I found that the
young larvae looked nice under crossed polars, and took some
photographs. The photomicrograph above is the result.
Editor's note: Also see Mike's June 1997 article on using cross
polarised light in microscopy.
