Oamaru arrangement, Ernest Wainwright

Oamaru arrangement, corrected
Oamaru arrangement, missing diatom
Oamaru arrangement, wandering diatom

An arrangement of diatoms from Oamaru, New Zealand. Prepared by Ernest Wainwright and dated February 1951. One of the diatoms has gone on a wander, so I have prepared 2 images – one as it is now, and one which I have corrected by moving another similar diatom into the gap that was left behind.
