SUMMARY: Skuja, which has not been previously reported for Britain, is described with the use of the optical and the electron microscopes. The organism possesses an elaborate sheath which is not visible with the optical microscope; the sheath is probably made of organic material. Cell division and cyst formation are described. The cyst, not previously known, is described as seen with the optical microscope.
