Volvox colony is composed to of thousands of cells. The cells comprise a single layer with the flagella, have anterior eyespots, enlarge undergo a series of cell divisions and develop into special germ cells. The colonies release numerous Sperm packets, form different germ cells. Antonie van Leeuwenhoek reported observations of Volvox. The sample was collected along the creek bank at Muir Beach.
