Cardiac muscle

Cardiac muscles are identified by their  intercalated discs, which are usually prominent in longitudinal sections

Differential diagnosis: Muscle fibers can be confused with each other. Striated muscles have obvious striations, both transverse and longitudinal. Smooth muscles are devoid of striations while cardiac muscles have intercalated discs as their identifying feature.
