pls find attached pictures from a small unidentified flagellate. It is common in lakes of Sweden and Norway, the pictures were taken from material of a Norwegian lake (lugol.fixed sample). Any suggestions reg its phylogenetic position?
The cell has four flagella-like appendages, which insert in a sort of 'papilla'. The two outer seem rather stiff, while the two inner, pearl-string like flagella seem more flexible and are often coiled. There seems to be one chloroplast. The size of the cell is app. 3x5µm. It is well known to phytoplankton experts from Nordic countries, except nobody has a name for it.
thanks for helpful suggestions,
