Caption: Water flea. Light micrograph of a female water flea (suborder Cladocera). On her back is a brood pouch which contains several round eggs, in which her unhatched larvae are developing. The long antennae (upper right) have hairs and serve as rowing organs, producing a jerky swimming movement. The large single eye (black, centre right) can also be seen. Dark field illumination. Magnification unknown.
