I can hardly wait the day when I compare my universal filter to the real DIC... but in the meantime Scapholeberis mucronata in polarised light.

Hello Litonotus,

The second picture is from Scapholeberis mucronata as well, the horn is not always present (cornuta form).
The third picture is my favorit, scapholeberis prefers to live on the boundery of the water and the air gathering food from the watersurface.

Kind regards
Clado

thank you for this description (: I noticed that they are swimming just under the water surface.

Very nice!

I have a few water flea pictures with DIC, maybe I will post them so you can compare your UGF with DIC.
