Caption: Crustacean parasite. Dark-field light micrograph of the underside of a crustacean parasite (Argulus foliacea). This freshwater parasite of fish is usually found on carp (Cyprinus carpio). The head (top) has two reduced antennae above the eyes (black circles). Two suckers (brown filled circles with yellow rims, upper centre) are modifications of the maxillae. Below these are arm-like mouthparts (second maxillipeds). The body has four pairs of legs covered with bristles, the swimming legs. The bifurcated end of the body (lower centre) contains the anus. Magnification: x14 when printed at 10 centimetres high.
