Multi layer image (DOF)
Staurastrum teliferum is a small desmid with an acanthous cell wall. Desmids have the ability to move slowly on the surface excreting mucilage out of special pores. At the apical triangle shaped surface one can see the pores to excrete mucilage for movement. Depth of focus technique was used for the multi layer image.
