Summary: 
   (A) Filament of Dolichospermum circinale. Note the specialised cells – known as heterocytes – within the filament. These are sites of nitrogen fixation. Scale bar 50 μm. (B) Filament of Dolichospermum spiroides, also with heterocytes. Compare the tight spirals with the open spirals of D. circinale. Scale bar 50 μm. (C) Filaments of Cylindrospermopsis raciborskii. The specialised cells within the filaments are akinetes (resting spores). Tiny conical heterocytes occur at the ends of some filaments. Scale bar 50 μm. (D) A filament of Cuspidothrix issatschenkoi containing heterocytes. The terminal cells are long, tapering and colourless. Scale bar 50 μm.
