Count Notes:

  ?
  Comments: Low to moderate diatom abundance (204 diatom cells with protoplast in first transect and 171 without).
 
Taxa Notes:
 
Naded 261000: No colonial form.
Naded 807001: Larger cells than most Aphanocapsa (within range).
Naded 820006: Could have been part of larger BG colony, however, no other BG colony observed.
Naded 401000: Completely prostrate forms, difficult to see filamentous form.
Naded 888005: No great characters, but fits O. limosa well.
