Chlorarachnion (clore-a-rack-knee-on) reptans, an unusual autotrophic amoeboid organism. The plastids were obtained by endosymbiosis from an alga, and a residual algal nucleus, referred to as a nucleomorph, provides genetic information for plastid activity. Cells often form extensive arrays with interconnected pseudopodia. This image shows a single cell with its pseudopodia. Differential interference microscopy.
