Simple multicellular alga of the Order Volvocida - often quoted as illustrating the path to multicellularity. Small spherical or ovoid colonies of between 4-64 flagellated cells coexist within a gelatinous envelope. Pandorina and Volvox are similar though more complex.
Eudorina is a genus of colonial green algae, specifically of the Volvocaceae. Eudorina colonies consist of 16, 32 or 64 individual cells grouped together. Each individual cell contains flagella which allow the colony to move as a whole when the individual cells beat their flagella together.
