Marine copepod and amphipod

Post by Tardigrade37 »

A couple pics of common crustaceans in darkfield. The copepod is a stack of 4 images with ZS. The amphipod is a single image.



Images acquired on a Zeiss Axiovert 200M.

I have yet to find a copapod, but the second one looks like a Gammarus Shrimp. I have seen a number of those in my Mississippi River Sample. :)

Nice job on both. The first in particular, as these have such depth it is tricky to get such a clean darkfield stack.
