This was found in a man-made wetland/lake (Wallisville Lake Project by the Corps of Engineers). Has anyone seen anything like this before? Other plants found with it were a few different algae (thread algae mostly), mosquito fern, P. hydropiperoides, Alligatorweed, duckweed, and cattails. The glossy/oily film in the first pic is probably boat motor oil (this channel leads to a boating area).

A liverwort thallus has more structure to it. My guess is that it is an alga.

I'd have to agree with HeyPK, but I'd still grow it out in a tank just in case :)

Thanks for the responses guys. It looks like hair algae, just super thick strands (1/16th inch or more).

I'm a step ahead of you, hooha. ;) It's in my "tupperware wetland" at work.
