I'm using a celestron microscope with 4, 10, 40, 100 times magnification. Eye pieces are 10 and 20.

Nice catch! Can't say more than that they are peritrich and probably colonial

Do give us some details on the objective used and of your microscope.

By the way, just in case you have not come across this site: https://www.mdfrc.org.au/bugguide/resou ... uides.html

You should definitely download: A guide to the identification of rotifers, cladocerans and copepods from Australian inland waters Russ Shiel
Zeiss Standard WL (somewhat fashion challenged) & Wild M8
Olympus E-P2 (Micro Four Thirds Camera)
