Yes, I think its a cyclops. Fun things, aren't they? Those are eggs sacs hanging off the back end I think. They can remain dormant in dry conditions, only to hatch when a puddle forms.

Yes, it is a Cyclops in the broad sense. What was once a huge genus has now been split down into Acanthocyclops etc.
I'm not sure about the Cyclops eggs being drought resistant. I thought the dormant stage was one of the early juvenile stages that encysts in the mud.
the eggs can remain dormant for up to 5 years is its home dries up
