Skeletal development in Hermesinum adriaticum Zacharias, a flagellate from the Salton Sea, California

  title={Skeletal development in Hermesinum adriaticum Zacharias, a flagellate from the Salton Sea, California},
  author={Mary Ann Tiffany},
Hermesinum adriaticum is a rarely reported unicellular biflagellated organism with a solid siliceous skeleton. Live specimens were not observed but many skeletons were found in sediments and, in small numbers, in cyanobacterial mats and the water column of the Salton Sea, a salt lake in California, U.S.A. Stages of the developing skeleton were studied with scanning electron microscopy, and the progression from small tetraxial daughter skeletons to complete asymmetrical adult skeletons is… CONTINUE READING
