Wow, excelente fotografia!

Definitivamente tengo que comenzar a realizar ahorros para comprar un juego de DIC para mi Nikon Labophot.

Impressive! :) (¡Impresionante!) :)


Quick online translation to English:

It is the first time that in this forum I write. Excuse my poor English.

I believe that this is Euchlanis rotíferos dilatata A. It stems from the Nations, you United Yago. The Photography With this carried out DIC Nomarski fluorite 40x Olympus BX 51 AND The Progress of the Camera Jenoptik With flash. Thanks.

Absolutely wonderful image - congratulations!!

...and yes, I also think this is Euchlanis dilatata

Though we lean upon the same balustrade, the colours of the mountain are different.

Hi Abel,

I know you and your excellent images already from the french forum for microscopy!

Regarding your very nice image I would like to correct the identification. This is not Euchlanis dilata but Lepadella ovalis. My reference is:

Voigt, M. (1957): Rotatoria. Die Rädertiere Mitteleuropas. Bornträger, Berlin. 505 pp

Take a look to page 198.

Wish you a nice evening!
