Micscape challenges you!
|Last month I found this strange star
shaped marine organism in a catch with a plankton net. It
was rather translucent so the best image I could get was
with phase contrast illumination.
I photographed it with a 16X objective and a 2.5X eyepiece. The size of the organism was about 0,4 mm.
I have no idea what it is. The first three people with the good answer (or the most fantastic wild guesses) get a nice prize.
