Rogelio, beautiful lighting!

As Jacek stated, it's a pupa.
It should be a pupa of a 'mosquito', i. e. Culicidae.

So you caught it in water?

Thank you for your comments!

Jacek and Betty thanks for the help.

Betty, I found it on the surface of my sample. I used darkfield + polarized light + retarder.
