Field Notes
I did not have any challenges when I was doing my work and I did not find any Dasysiphonia in the algae that we looked at in the microscopes.
Supporting Evidence
Photo of my evidence.
This is not Dasysiphonia because it does not have axial growth or dichotomous growth.
Photo of my evidence.
In this picture there are not long filaments and curves and its not flattened with midrib. The cells in this picture are not like Dasysiphonia because they are in one place and not being blocked by anything.

This picture is not flattened if it was then it might be Dasysiphonia. This is not Dasysiphonia because the cells are not blocked they are all in one thing.

The structures are not right - you are correct that this is not Dasysiphonia. If you want to know what it looks like, check out this site:
