In this article Nostoc spheroids are described as edible blue-green algae, but they are mostly named cyanobacteria, which are prokaryotes.

In the above and other articles about Nostoc spheroids only sizes of the colonies are mentioned and i couldn't find the individual cell sizes.

Can the sizes of individual cells of Nostoc spheroids, and other cyanobacteria like Nostoc commune and Nostoc muscorum be found somewhere on the internet ?

  • $\begingroup$ 1) You may have done some research, but IMO posting a link to Wikipedia page notifying us that there is no such page isn't convincing. 2) Lack of interest in searching out trivia for you isn't a sign that the question can't be answered. ā€”ā€”ā€” If you really care about this information I encourage you to either write a convincing argument for why this is interesting or spend the time to find out the answer yourself. $\endgroup$

If you have a question about a bacterial species. Bergey's manual is your friend: it is the definitive manual for bacterial morphology. Most universities have it as a pdf ā€”I am unable to speculate on whether it is also available on say sci-hub (a paper pirating site). Check out figure 810.78 on page 576. Their shape can vary a large bit, but it is in the 1-3 Āµm range, so the usual size for diderm bacteria (2 Āµm is the length of an E. coli).
