Description:

Found in a kick sample taken from the Foss. (River approx 75cm deep at this point - levels slightly elevated due to recent heavy rainfall)
Apologies for using picture instead of photo - organism was too small and fast for me to take any kind of clear photo. This is approximately what it looked like - see ID notes for further info..
