Taxa Notes:
Naded 298000: Spherical shaped cell with two flagella. Cell diameter is about 6.8µm.
Naded 316026: Strongly curved cells with pointed poles. Cell length is 96.6 and width is 9.7
Naded 327022: Cells have a deep median constriction with moderately open sinus. Semicells with a sub-circular outline. Cell length is about 11.3µm and width is 7.8µm.
Naded 341001: Cells about as broad as long and have a deep depression in the middle of the apices. Cells are rectangular in outline and apical depressions form an oval when joined in a filament. Cell length and width is about 15.5µm.
Naded 379004: Cell length is about 13.5µm and width is about 11.3µm. Semicells are trapezoidal in outline and rounded. Apex of cell has v-shaped notch. Sinus is closed. Sides of cells have 4 spines. Cell wall is granulated.
Naded 389004: Ovoid to spherical cells incased in a mucilage envelope. Mucilage envelope is globose. Chloroplasts are cup shaped.
Naded 418003: Cells are slightly constricted and rectangular-cylindrical shaped in side view. Cells are circular in vertical view. Cells are incased in mucilage sheath. Cell length is about 9.5µm and width is about 12.2µm. Cells are 1.3 times broader than long.
Naded 444000: Cylindrical shaped filaments with plate-like chloroplast. Cell size varies.
Naded 444006: Cylindrical shaped filaments with plate-like chloroplast. Filaments are very thin (no more than 10µm wide) in comparison to Mougeotia sp.
Naded 455000: Cylindrical shaped filaments with net-like chloroplast. Cells enlarge towards cell junctions. Cell size varies.
Naded 458004: Cells are ovoid to ellipsoid and are incased in a parental cell wall.
Naded 890025: Cylindrical shaped filament with a thin sheath and isodiametric cells. Filament diameter is about 3.0µm
Naded 481000: Cells have truncate apex with a crown. Cell has slight undulations past the basal inflation. Cell length is 290.2µm and length is 30.5µm. Cell is about 9.5 times broader than long.
Naded 481003: Cells have slight basal inflation with 1-3 undulations. Cell poles are truncate with rounded angles and no crown. Cell length is 385.8µm and length is 17.7µm. Cells are 21.3 times longer than broad.
Naded 533990: Cylindrical shaped filamentous cells. Chloroplast are in a ribbon that coils around the inside if the cell.
Naded 582000: Cylindrical shaped cells in a filament. Cells have two plastids with large pyrenoid at center of radiating short branches in stellate pattern
Naded 863016: Cylindrical filaments in a thin sheath. Filament ends not tapper and cells are not constricted. Filament width is about 1.3-1.5µm.
