Author's notes

This is a freshwater algae. The "spheres" on the soil surface are each a single cell up to about 1 mm in diameter, attached to the soil by rhizoids; each sphere is an individual plant. They were growing on the cracking mud that was still moist. The species is rarely seen, mainly because it's so small.
