Chilika lake is a unique assemblage of marine, fresh and brackish water ecosystem, with amazing floral and faunal diversity. The diversity is under the exploration and every sampling is an excitement to learn new and more about the prevailing organism and its ecosystem. Chilika harbours a good number of seagrass species which makes the lagoon a productive ecosystem. With the Foldscope the study of epiphytic community of Seagrass has taken a turn and has risen the curiosity to understand every organism found here.
During the southern sector sampling from the seagrasses dominated are, sediment samples were collected. We spotted a live benthic organism that was immediately mounted and observed under foldscope. However,, the identification of the organism seemed to be difficult. We would be glad if the viewers could help us in identifying the organism and add their valuable comments below.
