I'm pretty sure of the sp. id of this critter.
As always happy to be corrected :)

Two seperate images different dates but from the same site.
I decided to combine them.

This would be pretty much the fastest swimming critter I've found in my samples.

In a fresh water stock trough.
I thought something along the lines of Dalyelliidae but NZOR doesn't have any for NZ.
A guess but around 30 microns long.
