Moved from Spinicaudata.

Family ID and following comment by Christopher Rogers.

"That clam shrimp is in the family Limnadiidae. It is probably Eulimnadia, but could be Limnadia. To get to genus I would need to see the ventral margin of the telson in lateral view. To get to genus and species, I would need to see the eggs.

In Illinois one can find Limnadia lenticularis, Eulimnadia agasizii, E. antlei, E. diversa, maybe a couple of others."

Moved from Crustaceans.
