Description of specimen
Cell relatively light in colour due to the comprehensive collapse of the inner body. The very dark amorphous to granulate cell material is seen to be enveloped in the very thin, delicate inner body which is twisted and attached to the cell wall at both ends. At the right is a strand of material which may represent the shrunken inner body of a previously adjacent cell.
