This record represents the third record of this species from SK, but it has not been reported since at least 1992 from the province and was thought to be extirpated. Effectively this is a confirmation that this orchid species still persists in SK.

Descripción

Growing on shaded limestone rock ledge on top of thin layer of soil and moss in limestone crevices. Occurs in a mixed cyanobacterial and soil diatom community, but this observation is for the turquoise strands.

  1. The species is filamentous, with sparse single false branching.
  2. It is nitrogen fixing and has orange quadratic heterocytes, with an average size of 9.3 x 7.1 μm.
  3. Cell walls are EXTREMELY faint and hard to make out. The ones in the photos are the clearest I could manage, but for the first 15 minutes or so I wondered if there were any at all to see.
  4. Filaments are approximately 6.5 μm wide (average of multiple filaments, excluding the sheath), and the sheath is approximately 1 μm wide, and dusted with precipitate.

Growing on pink/whitish limestone. Spores appear to be either of two different types (one with easily visible and unique jigsaw-shaped septa, and the other with hard to see septa and intercellular speckling). Average spore sizes (n=8 each) are 15.7 x 3.8 μm (jigsaw septa) and 17.9 x 4.4 μm (opaque spores) for the two types.

White stripes, wide oculo-malar spaces, and rufous spot are diagnostic for this species.

This is a highly unusual observation of the species including a nest, as nests are almost never seen. To view more on how unusual this nest is, see here:

This is also a bizarrely southerly record for a nest of this Arctic species.

This is a new seep to science of this globally imperiled moss, which is heavily threatened due to climate change and is known from only 19 sites in Canada.

Sample confirmed by Dr. Caners, Royal Alberta Museum.

Location obscured to protect the population.
