Mystery Micrograph revival time! Y’all failed the previous one, but fear not — there are plenty more to come! The subject of the last puzzle, shown below, is the surface of a testate amoeba — namely, the organic test of Arcella spp. The hint post provides a more general view of the cells. The elevated ‘ridges’ around the honeycomb are a combination of cement and small pores — too small to be resolved by light, but visible in the SEM in the middle of this ToLWeb page).
Now that that’s out of the way… time for a new one! I expect to hear more than just *crickets* this time (besides, crickets aren’t known for their protistological prowess). Tell me — who’s the vandal who made these holes in the fungal hyphae in this scanning electron micrograph?
