I received the following mail:

Paul, do you know this parasite?

It moves like a flea! I thought it was Chilodonella, but the little “legs” put me off.

Identify parasite Parasite

What do you say?

It moves "like a flea" Argulus do not move like a flea.

Costia does, but is much smaller and has no "legs"

Nee, dit is 'n KZN parasiet die. Wat dit ookal is.

Miskien moet ek by NASA gaan aanklop. Lyk soos 'n maan tuig.

Miskien is dit glad nie 'n paresiet nie... jy weet mens kry een / twee selige oganismis ook. As dit 'n parasiet is is my raai Chillodonella.

Hi,

It's not a parasite - vossie is probably right. It's just a naturally occuring micro-organism.

In a drop of pond water lots of things should move around under a microscope it's a sign of healthy water not parasites.

Regards,
Chris
