Macro on Monday - Guess What

First last week's puzzle alongside a full picture of the object:

rectangle_New-Out99999   Chinese Lantern plant seed case

This time it was Jan who deserves the gold star for correctly identifying it as a seed case from a Chinese Lantern Plant (Physalis). Well done Jan.

Now on to the new puzzle picture, this time taken through the microscope at about 35x magnification:


Clue: Definitely not a contender for the four minute mile record.
No prizes for correct identification other than having your name in lights.
Answer next Monday.


  1. A green or grey lipped snail. I'll go for grey lipped.

  2. Somebody didn't go at a snail's pace to guess the answer, at double speed! ;) I was all excited to recognize a snail's shell, but would never have thought to specify which 'model'. Hope you're right on the mark Adrian :)

  3. Well done to Jan; and I reckon this one's a snail.
    Make and model unknown lol

  4. I have a smile from ear to ear and will wear my gold star with pride :) I really wasn't at all confident!

    I have no suggestions for this one at all but can see others seem to be thinking alike. Good luck to everyone.

  5. It looks like the folds on a turks turban squash?

  6. Thank you to all those who tried to identify the mystery object.


Thank you for visiting. Hope you enjoyed the pictures. Any comment, or correction to any information or identification I get wrong, is most welcome. John
