Taxa Notes:
Naded 261000: Long, slender cells in a colony. Cells are straight or slightly curved and do not wrap around each other. Cells are wider in the middle region and tapper towards ends.
Naded 824004: A spherical colony containing small ovate cells. Cells are crowded and evenly arranged. Cells produce a hollow sac.
Naded 327011: Cell length is 12.7µm and width is 12.0µm. Cells are about as long as broad. Deep median constriction closed sinus. Semicells are semiellptic in outline. Cell wall granulated. Smaller than discption in Prescott
Naded 327085: Cell length is 27.3µm and width is 13.8µm. Cells about 2 times longer than broad. Moderate median constriction with a slightly open sinus. Cell wall is granulated.
Naded 327100: Cell length ranged from 16-20µm and width ranges from 11-15µm. Cells 1.3-1.5 times longer than broad. Deep median constriction with widely open sinus. Semicells broadly elliptic in outline.
Naded 828002: Cylindrical shaped cells in a filament with the heterocyte located and the end of the filament.
Naded 350000: Colony is elliptic in shape and contains 7 smaller spherical cells that are attached by finely branching strands that radiate from the center of the colony.
Naded 379000: Cell length was 21.4 and widh was 13.0. Cell apices have a median sinus that is narrow and open. Basal lobes are broadly rounded. Median sinus is narrow and closed.
Naded 379024: Cell length is 27.1µm and widh is 20.7µm. Cell is about 1.25 times longer than broad. Basal angles have short spines. Cells are flat at the apex and have a spine at the apex. The median notch at the apex is deep and open.
Naded 379026: Cell length is 16.8µm and width is 12.4µm. Basal angles very round and slight, narrow incision at apex of cell. Sinus narrow and closed.
