Hi,

My first guess was Colacium sp., a euglenoid genus that occurs as epizoans on rotifers and crustaceans.

When you press your preparations a bit more (easy if you have a fresh exuvia), you might see the characteristic euglenoid red eyepatch. If there is no eyepatch, it might be something else.

Examples of Colacium:

Regards,

Ichthy

Very nice images.
The first two are beautiful (composition and atmosphere).

Litonotus,
I guess it is the green alga Chlorangium stentorinum.

Very interesting the photos and information.
There is some kind of mutual benefit in this case between algae and copepod?
