Description: H-shaped hyaline microfossil, 97.5–155.0 x 56.0–62.5 µm; Wall ca. 0.2 µm thick; The space connecting the two parallel cylindrical filaments containing a more or less square spore with rounded edges 47.4–55.0 x 34.0–45.2 µm; Wall of the spore ca. 0.7 µm thick. Although up to now only fossil zygospores of aplanospores offilamentous algae were observed, the H-shaped micro fossils probably are fossilized conjugating filament cells of a zygnemataceous form, showing the formed zygospores in situ.
