Anacystis



Anacystis Meneghini: Chroococcaceae.

Blue-green algae. These species are single celled, cylindrical or rod-like to rectangular; found in water, on rocks and soil. They do not form colonies but the cells aggregate together in irregular clumps, within a slimy matrix. These aggregates may appear yellow or brown with age. Can cause taste and odor problems. May produce lipopolysaccharides capable of causing skin irritation and gastrointestinal distress.
