Description: Coenobia composed of polyhedral and marginal cells provided with two internal truncate horns. Cell surface granular. Colonies bearing 16 to 32 cells without intercellular spaces.

(Sub-) Fossil occurence: No information

Co-occurence: No information

Modern occurence: Pediastrum colonises shallow, enriched lakes, ponds and rivers (Reynolds 2006). This alga is sensitive to low insolation (Sarmaja-Korjonen et al. 2006) and to high turbidity (Reynolds 2006).

Palaeoenvironmental indication: Eutrophic to mesotrophic conditions / Open water
