Again we see the flagellate peranema, for his back "tail" and slow motion we assume that it is Peranema cuneatum.
Peranema has two flagella, one close to the body and not visible in the video, another long and directed forward.
No lives with light, other drop freshwater inhabitants should eat which she lives.

Phase contrast and oblique light.
Sample taken from Tala, freshwater stream, Route 3, Km 88, Uruguay, South America.
