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 a picture instead of a photo - organism was too small and constantly moving for me to take any kind of adequate photo.
It looked approximately like this picture - see ID notes for further information.
