a crustacean animal in the nocturnal sea plankton

Post by Franz Neidl »

It is a crustacean, about 4 mm long. Therefore I had to make two pictures with my objective 4x.
I dont know the family. Maybe somebody can help.

It is an Isopod, and I would say it belongs to the family Gnathiidae, likely Gnathia sp., a juvenile.
