Mosquito plumose antennae

The mosquito plumose antenna images have been taken through the foldscope , mosquitoes have two antennae beneath their eyes, each with two segments. plumose antennae well develop only in the male mosquitoes to detect sound as a means of finding mates.

Brachionus calyciflorus

it is a rotifera, it will show their body structure as a crown, chlorella pyrenoidosa and bacteria are important food items. it has captured under the foldscope by Msc student as a part of his project work


rotifera, generally it is appeared in fresh water body in their structure it is showing like Eiffel tower , what do you say toes, it is use full to adhesive by secreting glue like material flinching movement of rotifera rotifera cilia movements


Actually we are maintaining paramecium culturing, but in that culture i found nematode then i observed nematode under the foldscope. it is showing speed movements


Euplotes, it is a ciliated protozoan, it has captured by Msc student under the foldscope as part of his project work, he has seen in the fresh water sample, they are the common in the fresh water body


daphnia, it is a larvae of crustaceans, they have one compound eye in the middle place.they survive in the aquatic place.


pondorina, it is a green algae they composed with 6,8 cells, cells hold together to form a sack globular colony surrounded by mucilage Each cell has two flagella with two contractile vacuoles at their base, flagella use for locomotion. it has captured by one of the student as a his project work .


Spirulina is a biomass of blue-green algae, Spirulina has amazing properties and in many ways can be considered a Super Food. It contains the most remarkable
concentration of nutrients known in any food, plant, grain, or herb. as well as the ability to help regulate the immune is captured by Msc student through the foldscope as a his project work


Spherical colonies of bright green Volvox cells rotate in unison


Actinastrum, it is a fresh water single cell algae, we can identify easily because it has star shaped and it has been suggested as an indicator for industrial pollution of aquatic ecosystem and frequently appears in phytoplankton of lakes and rivers. these actinastrum was observed by MSC zoology student Mr srikanth as part of his project work
