Description

Mag. 100x (1,2), 400x (2,3,4)
A brown Loxodes that exhibited odd behavior. It appeared to snag on a fork-shaped bit of detritus, though no snare was visible. At the point of contact the body of the Loxodes acquired a kink and constriction (see images 2 & 3). When the Loxodes swam away, it retained the deformity (image 4). What's going on?

  • After gently pushing aside the cover of lily pads, a pond side water sample was taken on 07/16/2022 using a 10µ dip net to enrich for microbes. Air temp. 79°F.
