Mixed radiolarians

Organism : Planktonic Protists

Description : These single-celled organisms barely visible to the naked eye are abundant in the Bay of Villefranche sur Mer. Here you see 3 species of radiolarians: Aulacantha scolymantha, Thalassicola pellucida and Thalassolampe Margarodes. Other radiolarians such as Collozum inerme (bottom right) form colonies at certain stages of their existence. Small ochre-colored spots are symbiotic algae often present in radiolarians - Photo : N.
