Arcella sp.

25x, 75µm, Phase, Olympus E-p2

Included the ciliate (possibly Stylonychia sp.) collision at the beginning because it showed several views of the Arcella, the sides and the back, that should allow for a better chance at a species ID.
This time the Amoeba was home, unfortunately it did not do much more than peek out.

Thanks gekko.
... and very helpful ciliate.
Indeed, the Arcella had flipped onto its side and then just stayed like that.
I suspect I was in for a long wait as it seemed to be getting nice and comfortable, ... then the ciliate showed up.
I think you could say that the ciliate not only showcased the Arcella but rescued me as well. :)
