Microbes: Chlamydophrys, a little reported amoeba inside a house called a test, usually has one large nucleus and forms clusters as in this group of 10.

Ocean explorers have made an inventory of the ocean species that are hardest to see, yet together underpin almost all other life on Earth. The study has been carried out as part of the Census of Marine Life, a huge 10-year project involving researchers in more than 80 nations that aims to chart the diversity, distribution and abundance of life in the oceans
