Yes, it's E. spirogyra...the warty protuberances are pretty distinctive. :) Strictly speaking, it's now called Lepocinclis spirogyroides (Marin et al, 2003), but the old name is still in common use. The old Euglena clade was pretty messed up...E. spirogyra shared a branch of the family tree with Leponcinclis ovum and a bunch of Phacus species. :) With that weird, semi-rigid pellicle you can see why it was moved to Lepocinclis.

Fabulous images, as always!
