Organisms in running water

#1 Post by glennbech » Wed May 04, 2016 7:16 pm

I took a sample today from a stream to see what organisms that lurk in moving water compared to the still pond. I made sure grab substrate as well as water.

The first sample is in. This looks like som kind Crustacean? I put the focus on a "vein" running from the tail and all the way up to the tail.

Hmm, not my area but looks to me like a limb or part thereof? Someone here's certain to recognize it - watch this space. :)

Effectively a 100X magnification make me think an insect leg.
