Coscinodiscus radiatus Ehrenberg 1840

Class: Coscinodiscophyceae, Order: Coscinodiscales, Family: Coscinodiscaceae, Genus: Coscinodiscus. Image of Coscinodiscus radiatus Ehrenberg 1840. Cells isolated on December 15, 2009 from Trincomali Channel (TC), Spanish Hills Wharf, Galiano Island, B.C.

A common coastal marine diatom, not reported from polar regions. Cells are solitary. Not abundant, but common throughout the year in our TC samples. Cells flat (coin shaped) or only slightly convex with a shallow mantle and round edge (margin) [Images 1-3]. Diameter range reported as: 13-218 µm (Hasle et al., 1986, Sancetta, 1987, Sar et al., 2010). The plastids are numerous and cocciform. Central rosette of areolae (pores), that may be indistinct, and with a hyaline area ranging from apparent to indistinct. Hyaline lines are absent (Hoppenrath et al., 2009) [Images 1, 4]. The range of areolae in 10 µm is 3.5-6 near the centre, 2-6 in the middle of the valve, and 4-8 at the valve margin [Image 1, 4]. Small rimoportulae are randomly distributed throughout the valve; they are considerably smaller than the valve areolae [Images 1, 4]. Cribra are slightly domed and covers the areolae [Images 1-3]. One ring of marginal rimoportulae [Images 1-2]: there are two macrorimoportulae with a reported angle range of between 129-145 degrees and numerous microrimoportulae 2-4 per 10 µm. Three bands comprise the cingulum [Images 1-2]. One band has numerous small areolae along striae located on the pervalvar axis [Image 4] reported at 45-50 in 10 µm (Hasle et al., 1996, Sar et al., 2010).

Observations on Trincomali Channel samples and notes on diagnostic features:

Areolae: A central rosette of areolae (pores), that may be indistinct, and with a hyaline area ranging from apparent to indistinct. Hyaline lines are absent (Hoppenrath et al., 2009). The areolae are large for this genus—averaging 0.8 µm in diameter for the TC isolates [Images 1, 4], and generally consistent in diameter with two exceptions; 1) much smaller at the margin (Al-Yamani et al., 2009), and 2) for small cells (Sar et al., 2010). Areolae form in radial rows of decussating (intersecting) arcs. The reported range of areolae in 10 µm is 3.5-6 near the centre, 2-6 in the middle of the valve, and 4-8 at the valve margin (Hasle et al., 1986, Hasle et al., 1996, Sar et al., 2010). This matches the measurements for this isolate: 5-5.5 in 10 µm near the centre, 5-6 in the middle of the valve and 5-6 µm in 10 µm at the valve margin (equivalent to the 2009 TC isolate and clone) [Images 1, 4].

Single opening in the hyaline area: A small opening has been reported on the hyaline area of the exterior valve that does not reach into the interior (Hasle et al. 1986); not reported in Sar et al. (2010), found in one deeply cleaned 2011 TC isolate (Images 19-20); not yet found in our 2019 TC isolate and cleaned clones.

Cribra: Cribra are slightly domed and covers the areolae [Images 1-3]. The areolae have numerous small pores. Pore measurements for other TC isolates derived from SEM images range from 0.4 µm to 1 µm. Unlike C. perforatus—a species easily confused with C. radiatus (Sar et al., 2010)—C. radiatus has no subsidiary perforations around the cribrum; however, in C. radiatus there are noticeably larger poroids circling around the outside of the cribra. The 2019 TC isolate has cribra filled with a range of 86 to 98 pores: Hasle et al. (1986) has images of cribra showing a range of between 54 and 149 (our counts). Hasle et al. (1986) caution on using differences in cribra structure for Coscinodiscus identifications. However, Sar et al. (2010) consider the differences in cribra pattern important, at least for distinguishing C. radiatus from C. perforatus. These differences in Coscinodiscus species require further investigation.

Valve rimoportulae: Scattered across the valve are small rimoportulae, much smaller than the areolae, that may differ in quantity amongst cells and by size of cells (Sar et al., 2010) [Image 1]. Valve rimoportulae in the TC 2011 and 2019 isolates measured 0.3 µm in diameter and exhibit the same variability in distribution noted by Sar et al. (2010).

Marginal rimoportulae: In girdle view, the cells are distinctively coin shaped (discoid) with a narrow perivalvar axis (Hasle et al., 1996, Sar et al., 2010) with one ring of marginal rimoportulae [Images 1-3]. The marginal ring has two macrorimoportulae with a reported angle of between 129-145o (Sar et al., 2010); clone J (2019) has a range of between 124 -137 degrees. By imaging with SEM, the inner macrorimoportulae are seen to be long and tubular with slit like openings. The outer opening is indented on the mantle and is visible with LM. There are regularly spaced smaller microrimoportulae along the marginal ring also visible with a LM, 2-4 per 10 µm Image 1, and for this 2009 isolate, 3-4 per 10 µm [Image 1]. Though they have a similar anvil shape, these microrimoportulae are noticeably shorter than the macrorimoportulae (Hasle et al., 1996). For Clone J-2019, the former are 0.55 µm and the latter are 0.9 µm at their widest dimension. The slits of both types of rimoportulae face the same direction, away from the valve centre, though we have occasionally observed microrimoportulae turned in dissimilar orientations. Coscinodiscus radiatus rimoportulae are morphologically different and larger than for C. perforatus, including a larger external opening of the macrorimoportulae (visible with LM) (Sar et al., 2010). Macro and micro rimoportulae are a diagnostic feature for Coscinodiscus species (Hasle et al. 1986).

Cingulum: There are three bands comprising the cingulum (Hasle et al., 1986, Sar et al., 2010) [Images 1-2]. One band has numerous fine areolae along striae located on the pervalvar axis [Image 4] reported at 45-50 in 10 µm (Sar et al., 2010); the 2011 and 2019 TC isolates have 40-43 in 10 µm.
Methods: C. radiatus cells isolated by micro-pipette from a general plankton tow with a 60 micron net at Spanish Hills Wharf, Trincomali Channel, North Galiano Island (N48˚ 59.688, W123˚ 35.064), Southern Gulf Islands, British Columbia, Canada, December 15, 2009. Cells isolated by micro-pipette and cleaned in at least three drops of sterile TC water. Transferred into HESNW growth media provided by the Canadian Center for the Culture of Microorganisms (CCCM, culture #: SHW-Cg-01) at the University of British Columbia, Vancouver. For SEM, cells preserved with 2% Formalin and washed repeatedly with distilled water through 13 mm plastic filters to remove salts (see complete method used in iNaturalist, Galiano Island, Attheya longicornis). Filters dried and stuck onto aluminium SEM stubs. Stubs sputter coated with gold. The SEM images were taken with a Hitachi S-4700 FESEM at the UBC Bioimaging Facility, University of British Columbia, Vancouver. Many thanks to Elaine Humphrey and Derrick Horne who assisted in sample preparation and the taking the SEM images.

And they’re all holographic…I first spotted them on the night of the Full Worm Moon, and it seems as though they all come to the sides of the tank and “swarm” when the moon is full or new…so we’ve dubbed them Moon Worms!

ID tentative, possibly another species in this genus.

Possibly my favorite “Two Species” observation from the trip! The large tarantula clearly had a commensal relationship with the little 2cm frog, which mostly stayed hidden underneath the tarantula. They shared a burrow. When the frog emerged from underneath the tarantula briefly, the tarantula slowly extended a gentle leg (first photo) and guided the frog back underneath its body to safety. 😍😍😍😍😍

I found several papers written on this amazing subject but never expected to see it for myself in the wild. Incredible experience!!

Descripción

I found this odd little burrowing cricket on a road in a suburban neighborhood in Durham NC (USA). The mole-like body form, especially the modified forelegs, is remarkable. This is, I believe, the native species:
Northern Mole Cricket - Neocurtilla hexadactyla (female?, body length 25 mm)

  • BugGuide: bugguide.net/node/view/8789
  • Capinera et al., Field Guide To Grasshoppers, Katydids, And Crickets Of The United States (Cornell University Press, 2004), pp. 212-213, plate 47
  • Helfer, How to Know the Grasshoppers, Cockroaches, and Their Allies (Wm. C. Brown Company, 1962), p. 323, fig. 515.
  • Singing Insects of North America: orthsoc.org/sina/351a.htm

I hear males calling from their burrows in suburban lawns on summer evenings, but I have never managed to catch one. I think this is a female, but am not sure.
Happy Wing Wednesday!
