Most likely ID: n.a.
Sampling location: Simmelried
Phylogenetic tree: n.a.
- the cells are oblong, young cells ovoid
- length 5–10 µm
- slightly pink colored
- spherical colonies, about 50–100 µm in diameter
- cells in the colonies are separated from each other
- no visible gelatinous sheath
- only few visible division stages in the colonies
- granules in the cells are scattered, with some distinct dark granules per cell

Fig. 1: Rhodobacteria 11. L = 5–10 µm. A slightly squashed colony in DIC (a, b) and in brightfield illumination (c, d). All cells are separated from each other. No gelatinous sheath is visible. Obj. 60 X.
Fig. 2: Rhodobacteria 11. L = 5–10 µm. The same colony as shown in fig. 1. Obj. 100 X.
