Thanks Hans! You're right it looks much more like Asterionella. Where was the sample taken from? You could add this information under Habitat.

hi,the original photo taken with 40x magnification in light microscope, it is a colony of diatoms but not that kind I think is aterionella

Hi HansBroidiguerMóucar! What's the magnification of this? Could it be a rosette of planctomyces?
