(Do you think that the inhabitants of this planet are named with Latin names?)

Maybe one time millions of years ago such creatures may have inhabited Mars!

Franz, Your "Martian" obviously made an involuntary splashdown in the sea :) or got in your plankton net in another unintended way. It should be an insect of the order Thysanoptera also known as thrips.
