A new cryptomonad from antarctica: Cryptomonas cryophila sp. nov.

  title={A new cryptomonad from antarctica: Cryptomonas cryophila sp. nov.},
  author={D. Lansing Taylor and Chun Chen Lee},
  journal={Archiv f{\"u}r Mikrobiologie},
A taxonomic diagnosis of Cryptomonas cryophila sp. nov. (Cryptophyceae) is given, and its ultrastructural morphology is described. Although isolated from beneath Antarctic sea ice, its fine structure differs little from that described for related species. The principal distinguishing features is the possession of paired, stalked pyrenoids, which have an unusual kidney-like morphology. Die Arbeit gibt die taxonomische Diagnose und beschreibt die Ultrastruktur von Cryptomonas cryophila sp. nov… CONTINUE READING
