an adventure: the moulting of a copepod

Post by Franz Neidl »

This was my today's adventure: To observe the moulting of a copepod. The animal had problems to liberate its head.( Maybe the coverglass was too heavy. Sorry...)
The species of the copepode is probably Anomalocera patersoni, but I am not completely sure.
