Wikipedia description

Pediastrum duplex is a type species of fresh water green algae in the genus pediastrum.

They form nonmotile coenobia (colonies) with a fixed number of cells. These coenobia are flat and have a circular shape. The cell bodies are polygonal, are granulated and have horn-like projections. They reproduce these autocolonies asexually. The colonies usually contain 8 to 32 cells, with examples of 4, 64 or 128 occurring rarely.

This sample is NOT available in BLAST service, because it was identified as mislabeled and/or contaminated and not analyzed for the 1KP publication [Nature 574, 679–685 (2019)]. Its data was released nonetheless as some find even these data useful. More information is given at [GigaScience 8, giz126 (2019)], including estimates of which particular sequences might be problematic.
