Coscinodiscus wailesii Gran & Angst 1931

Class: Coscinodiscophyceae, Order: Coscinodiscales, Family: Coscinodiscaceae, Genus: Coscinodiscus. Image of Coscinodiscus wailesii Gran & Angst 1931 (Guiry et al.2020). Isolated and cloned in 2019 (SHW-clone C-2019) from Trincomali Channel (TC), Spotlight Cove, North Galiano Island, B.C.

A common coastal marine diatom. Cells are solitary and described as discoid (Jameson et al. 2010), drum shaped (Lee et al. 1992), or large cylindrical cells (Hasle et al. 1992) [Images 1a, 2a-b]. Dimensions can range from low to taller than wide and rectangular in outline (mid cell focus) image 2b. Valves are flat at the centre but become concave and steep near the mantle Images 2b, 7, 12a. Diameter range of 160-500 µm (Gran and Angst 1930 in Lee et al. 1992, Hasle et al. 1997, Hoppenrath et al. 2009). Height of frustule is 30-350 µm (Lee et al. 1992), where the hight of the cell can be equal to its diameter (Hasle et al. 1992, 1997). The chloroplasts are numerous and irregular in outline Images 1a-b,2a, 4, 5.

A prominent central hyaline area free of internal and external perforations, irregular borders Images 8, 10, 11a, with morphological differences found in Brazilian specimens (Fernandes et al, 2001). Hyaline lines are wide and radiate from the central area Images 8, 11b.

Areolae are hexagonal in outline [Images 14b-c, 12c], complex structures and the pattern on the valve is radial with a range of 4-7 areolae in 10 µm, more commonly 5-6 (Cupp 1943, Hasle et al. 1992, 1997, Fernandes et al. 2001) [Images 11a-b, 12a-b]. Valve areolae slightly increasing in size from centre to margin, then near margin decreasing (Cupp 1943, Tagletti et al. 2010). Lee et al. (1992) reports 4-4.5 in 10 µm on valve face and valve mantle for specimens from Korean waters. Cribra are visible with LM, cover the areolae, are slightly domed and complex (Lee et al. 1992, Hasle et al. 1997).

Small rimoportulae are randomly distributed throughout the valve face Images 11a-b. Two rings of marginal micro-rimoportulae (small labiate processes) are found on the narrow zone, a sharp bend, between mantle and valve face in the mantle’s median region and near the edge of the mantle Images 12a-c, 14a-c: micro-rimoportulae 2-10 areolae apart Images 12a-c, 14a and 1-2 in 10 µm for Korean specimens (Lee et al. 1992), though considerable variation in distance has been noted (Hasle et al. 1992). There are two macro-rimoportulae per ring of processes with a reported angle range of 120-180 degrees apart Image 13. Lee et al. (1992) reports Korean samples have an angle of 120 degrees between the two macro-rimportulae.

Three collar shaped bands comprise the cingulum (Hasle et al. 1992). The bands have numerous small areolae along striae located on the pervalvar axis reported at 32-34 striae in 10 µm and 30-35 areolae (pores) in 10 µm (Hasle et al. 1992). Coscinodiscus wailesii is easily confused with both C. centrals and C. concinnus (Fernandes et al. 2001) and smaller C. wailesii cells with C. asteromphalus, due to a central rosette (Lee et al. 1992) found in both Korean and Brazilian specimens.

Reported from temperate to warm waters (Horner 2002). Coscinodiscus wailesii is distinguished from other Coscinodiscus species by: a) hyaline area and irregular outline, b) small areolae, close together on valve, c) radial pattern of areolae on valve, d) flat valve face, then concave at edge, steeply sloping to a sharp bend (three areolae wide) at mantle/valve, e) two rings of micro-labiate processes, spacing and their locations on valve and mantle, f) pattern and spacing of the hyaline interstriae on the mantle, each ending in a micro-labiate process near mantle edge, g) numerous chloroplasts and irregular in outline, h) small rimoportulae scattered across valve, i) large size of cell, height can be close to the diameter, and seen in girdle view a rectangular outline and j) locations macro-rimoportulae and morphology (requiring SEM).

C. wailesii can form blooms, is potentially biofouling and is considered an invasive species in some waters (Horner 2002, Hoppenrath et al. 2009, Talgattii et al. 2010). The species was first reported from the Sailish Sea near Nanaimo, British Columbia by Gran and Angst (1931) and identified in the Straight of Georgia by Shim (1976) during the summer and fall. Not reported in the Salish Sea in other surveys (Rao et al. 1976, Tynni 1986, Waters et al. 1992, Pienitz et al. 2003, Phyto'pedia - UBC 2020).

Observations on Trincomali Channel samples and notes on diagnostic features:

Hyaline area and lines: The hyaline area refers to surfaces, when seen with a light microscope (LM) are clear or free of areolae, pores or small rimoportulae Images 10, 11a-b. The hyaline area of the TC isolates are pronounced, slightly irregular in shape and accords well to other published images (Cupp 1943, Lee et al. 1992, Fernades et al. 2001, Talgatti et al. 2010, Jameson et al. 2010). However, Fernandes et al. (2001) demonstrate, at least for C. wailesii found in Brazilian waters, that smaller diameter cells can show a rosette pattern in the hyaline area, externally or internally, apparently due to successive size reductions after cell division (Schmid 1990).

Areolae: The areolae are in a radial pattern, small, close together and numerous [Images 8, 13, 14a]. Slightly differing from Gran and Angst (1930) and Talgatti et al. (2010) reports, but conforming to Hasle et al. (1992), the areolae in TC samples are generally smaller in the centre and slightly larger at the valve mantle Images 8, 11b, 13, 14a: the TC (SHW-clone C-2019) areolae range from 0.8-1.8 µm in diameter near the center, to 1.3-2 µm at the sharp bend, between mantle and valve face [Image 12b-c], and 1.2-1.5 µm along the mantle. Number of areolae are 5-6 in 10 µm (Hasle et al. 1997) and 4-4.5 for Korean specimens (Lee et al. 1992) and 5.5-6.5 (both LM and SEMs) for the 2019 TC isolate [10, 11a, 14b].

Valve rimoportulae or solid silica: Scattered across the valve are small rimoportulae or small hyaline areas of solid silica, slightly larger than the valve areolae Images 12, 16.

Marginal rimoportulae: C. wailesii has two rings of marginal rimoportulae [Images 12a, 14a-c]. Processes in the first ring are closer together than the outer processes along the mantle edge Images 14c. For TC isolate C, the ring of marginal processes at the sharp bend, between mantle and valve face, usually visible with LM, measures 2-6 areolae, or 5-14 µm apart [Images 12c-b, 14b]. The second marginal ring, not visible in valve view, are 3-3.5 areolae (about 7-8 µm) from the edge of the mantle and are 6-15 areolae, or 11.5-27 µm apart [Images 14b-c]. As in other reports, TC marginal rimoportulae have considerable variation in distance between processes (Hasle et al. 1992, Hasle et al. 1997). There are two macro-rimoportulae with a reported angle of between 120-180 degrees apart (Hasle et al. 1997). Lee et al. (1992) reports Korean samples have an angle of 120 degrees between the two macro-rimportulae, congruent with 121 degrees apart for the the TC specimen (SHW-clone C-2019) [Image 13]. The shape and size of macro and micro-rimoportulae are a diagnostic feature for Coscinodiscus species (Hasle et al. 1992). We do not have clear images of the macro-rimoportulae [Image 12b], however a detailed description can be found in Hasle et al. (1992).

Chloroplasts (plastids): The chloroplasts are numerous and possibly characteristic of this species [Images 1a-b, 2a]. Though reported as irregular in shape (Hasle et al. 1997), the C. wailesii TC chloroplast morphology appears distinctive and would suggest investigation [see the C.wailesii iNaturalist observation from November 23-24, 2019].

Occurrence: Found in the Trincomali Channel from September through December, a similar observation to Shim (1976).

Methods: Plankton collected with a 60 micron net at Spotlight Cove, Trincomali Channel, North Galiano Island (48°58’41.4"N, 123°34'11.2"W), Southern Gulf Islands, British Columbia, Canada, September 18, 2019. A single cell, SLC-clone C-2019 was isolated and cleaned via micro-pipette in at least three drops of sterile TC water and micro-pipetted into a 55 mm sterile polystyrene petri dish containing Guillard f/10 growth media and cloned at 16 degrees C with an artificial 12:12 day-night cycle. The initial diameter of the 2019 clone was 495 µm [Image 1b]. For LM a Nikon TE300 or E800 light microscope with Tucsen 16 MP DigiRetna or AmScope 20 MP back illuminated CMOS cameras were used. For LM imaging, live cells were micro-pipetted into sterile growth media either in culture dishes with #1.5 coverslip bottoms or onto a #1.5 coverslip and slide and sealed with a syringed ring of vaseline. Cells were either cleaned in 30-40 C concentrated nitric acid (preferred for C. wailesii) or 6-10 hours in 30% Hydrogen peroxide at 70-80 C in glass centrifuge tubes (for Coscinodiscus species multiple treatments of Hydrogen peroxide are required). Cells were rinsed in distilled water to remove salts and reaction products. For SEM, cells were micro-pipetted onto aluminium SEM stubs with incised grooves (Webber et al., 2020). Stubs sputter coated with gold. SEM images were taken with a Hitachi S-4800 FESEM at the Advanced Microscope Facility at University of Victoria or otherwise noted in the image descriptions. Many thanks to Elaine Humphrey who assisted in the taking the SEM images.

Rhagodima cf. nigrocincta

Cincta (cinctus, cinctum) in latin means "surrounded by". So the portmanteau "nigrocincta" can mean "surrounding by black color". This might refer to colors and patterns on the abdomen of this species. Or it may not refer to black patches on some legs which does not form full circle/ring as in R. Annulata.

But these informations are not clear to me as per the description by Henry Meyners Bernard who described the species as Rhax nigrocincta along with Rhax Howesii (currently assigned as Rhagodes melanopygus). Another information I can find is that as per Simon's 1885 description R. annulata has body length of 18mm and as per Bernard's description of R. nigrocincta is around 1.25 to 2 inches. T̶h̶e̶ ̶s̶p̶e̶c̶i̶m̶e̶n̶ ̶w̶e̶ ̶s̶a̶w̶ ̶w̶a̶s̶ ̶a̶r̶o̶u̶n̶d̶ ̶1̶.̶2̶ ̶t̶o̶ ̶1̶.̶5̶ ̶i̶n̶c̶h̶e̶s̶ ̶l̶o̶n̶g̶.̶ (The specimen was just 2 cms long after I re-checked the video where it climbed to my friend's hand. Videograb is attached as last photo.)

Henry Meyners Bernard's 1894 article on the species called "On two new species of Rhax. Journal of Linnean Soicety London" can be read here: https://ww.rcin.org.pl/dlibra/publication/88759/edition/67942/content?ref=struct

The illustrations on the book has been digitized and uploaded to Wiki Commons over here:
https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Rhagodima_nigrocincta.jpg

https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Rhagodima_nigrocincta_cutted.jpg

Comparing the images above I can see similar black patches on the legs. Also the white moustache pattern has good resemblance on the individual. But I don't see the spurs specified in illustrations.

Note: I am not conforming on the species level identification here. I have just added my notes here for future reference for anybody who wants to take this subject for research.

Kingfisher carried this goldfish around to several perches in three-four trees, chortling the whole while. From rather high up, he dropped the fish, and then almost immediately after that spit up a pellet (see picture 3).
