Hello Litonotus,

I think it is Daphnia magna. The front of the head is rather straight and little concave before the rostrumtip, D.similis is more convex. The antennule is obvious below the margin of the head, D. similis hardly.
If the whole body was to be seen is was more easy, The tailspine of D.magna is short and D.similis is long.
