What's that?



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.

Please send your answer to Wim van Egmond

Editor's note: the quiz is now over.
