Nitella translucens

Nitella translucens (Translucent Stonewort) has been found by Richard Lansdown on Skye. Previously known on Raasay (2002) and Soay (2010), this is only the third record for the vice-county and the first for mainland Skye.  It is an extraordinary size for a charophyte, being up to 60cm long and individual cells reaching 3cm.
