Field Notes
The sample was frozen for three months because we got it from Gulf of Maine Research Institution.
Supporting Evidence
Photo of my evidence.
Of every sample we took, what we found did not have the same growth pattern as the dasysiphonica japonica, which is axial growth.
Photo of my evidence.
The sample also wasn't transparent, because of how thick it was. Dasysiphonica is usually transparent to the point where you can see the cell structure.
Photo of my evidence.
The sample was green, instead of the red or pinkish pigment of the dasysiphonica japonica.
