Images of the newly recorded species of the genus Synura from Korea

Published today in the Journal of Ecology and Environment, authors from Kyungpook National University in Korea, report the first finding of three newly recorded Synura species. Synura are a small group of heterokont algae, they are colonial and have silica scales: the ultrastructure of which are used for classification. Here we share images form the study, which can be read in full here.

All scale bars, 1 μm.
