Aquatic arachnid? - Arrenurus - Male
Hillsborough, Orange County, North Carolina, USA

Size: ~1mm
Found in some pond water samples. Active swimmer but not strong, somewhat erratic. Couldn't get a side view, but the body seemed thick, the "tail" angled upwards sharply.

mite looks good
don't know much about them but a great find for BG if correct!

Thanks!

This looks like a crustacean of some kind, perhaps in its larval form.
