Gemmula of Ephydatia fluviatilis. Most freshwater sponges produce Gemmulae, globular bodies containing totipotent cells protected by a shell of the biopolymer spongin in order to survive unfavorable living conditions. Scale bar indicates 100 µm.

The specimen was gathered in the Historical Eider Canal Altenholz-Rathmannsdorf (Schleswig-Holstein, Germany). Sampling date 4/2018. The image was built up using several photomicrographic frames with manual stacking technique. Images were taken using Zeiss Axioskop with Olympus OM-D M5 MKII.
