Whatever it turns out to be, it's very nice video. Good work.

It's not chilodonella (no sign of a cytopharyngeal basket).

Nice view of the kineties & single macronucleus, but I am having trouble seeing the mouth. Is it at one end (apical)? One of the many, many oval Prostomatea, maybe....

Thanks everyone

Bruce, I wasn't able to see anything resembling a mouth either. Unfortunately he stayed in this position until he deflated so this is the only view I have.
