Fallacia sp.01FB

Ecological Preference:
The species is very small (6µm long and about 5µm broad). It is hard to see the striae even under 2000 mag. There are some species in Witkowski (2000) that resemble it but it is hard to say whether our species represents one of the species presented on Pl. 71:18-20 and Pl.70: 42-45
