Obelia geniculata

Post by wpo »

Hello all,

I want to show my first photomicrographic picture in this community:


A medusa of Obelia geniculata, a marine living cnidarian, only about one millimeter size. I found this medusa on a microscopical slide made by Schlüter & Mass, Halle an der Saale/Germany, round about 80 years ago. I do not know which dye was used for contrasting the specimen but it fluoresces quite wunderful under green light.

The data are recorded with a LEICA SP8 confocal microscope and the 3d-anaglyph (red-cyan) is generated with Bitplane Imaris 8.2

Best regards

a favourite subject to be mounted (permanent slide mount with Canada Balsam) by students in university practical zoology exams (been there, done that!)
student of entomology
Quote – Holmes on ‘Entomology’
” I suppose you are an entomologist ? “
” Not quite so ambitious as that, sir. I should like to put my eyes on the individual entitled to that name.
No man can be truly called an entomologist,
sir; the subject is too vast for any single human intelligence to grasp.”
