A strew slide from Thurø, Denmark. Wide range of species present. Prepared by Brian Darnton. Shown above are Achnanthes longipes, Lyrella lyra, a Pleurosigma species (perhaps P. inflatum), and a Plagiotropis. The Plagiotropis is perhaps P. maxima (current name, Amphiprora maxima). I initially thought P. lepidoptera, but the stria on this one look to be too coarse for that. Thanks to the Diatom Imaging Facebook group for help with naming a couple of these.
