Tetraspora (division Chlorophyta) A genus of microscopic green algae which appear to be closely related to Chlamydomonas. The vegetative cells are non-motile and typically occur in gelatinous colonies (e.g. Tetraspora gelatinosa forms amorphous green masses which may be visible to the naked eye). They are found in still freshwater habitats.
