Caption: Cypris ostracod swimming. Light micrograph of freshwater ostracods (Cypris sp.), showing their internal organ structure. Ostracods are small crustaceans, typically around one millimetre in size. The body of an ostracod is encased by two halves (valves) of a 'shell' (carapace), similar to that of a mussel or clam. They swim smoothly with appendages extended from between the two halves of their shell, which they withdraw into when disturbed. Most ostracods feed on rotting plant and animal material, although some are predatory.
