Fig. 1

a A scheme showing lobes and lobules of Micrasterias compereana. The differentiation of the lower semicell into the polar lobe, two lateral lobes, and multiple sublobes is illustrated. The upper semicell shows differentiation of the lateral lobes into lobules of the 3rd and 4th order. b Position of 208 landmarks on the cell of Micrasterias compereana. c Position of landmarks on terminal lobules designated as units for the analyses of matching symmetry and morphological integration. Scale bar = 25 μm
