Thalassiosira gravida

Thalassiosira gravida and T. rotula are very similar in structure. The differences in their "valve structure seemed to be temperature dependent. T. gravida may appear in mucilage colonies in the Antarctic." See Tomas in Taxonomic References. Collected from Ross Sea area, Antarctica, December 2004.
