order Volvocales, family Chlamydomonadaceae, genus Chlamydomonas

As to the species: there are vast numbers. The one most often illustrated 
in UK books is C. pertusa (Chodat), a species with a stellate 
chloroplast. But for pity's sake don't use 'stellate chloroplast' as a 
diagnostic feature for C. pertusa. As I say, there are a huge number of 
species.
