Description

I don’t have one hot solitary clue as to what this is. @Ian_gardiner @shawnb2 could either of you perhaps shed some light on the ID and point me in the right direction?

Collected free swimming in Spectacle Lake, depth < 1 meter, temperature 2.6 C. Collected and have available for further diagnostics. Video of live movement taken under microscope, will work to convert to GIF and upload.
