Coleochaete orbicularis (cropped)

Vegetative Coleochaete "orbicularis". This is the isolate 'pondspride'. The Coleochaetales are branched, filamentous algae with sheathed hairs. All are oogamous, and many have very complex thalli and life histories. The Charales, Zygnematales, and Coleochaetales are the closest algal relatives of embryophytes (land plants).
