bosmina are small, planktonic crustaceans, between 0.2 and 5 mm in length. They are members of the order Cladocera, and are one of the several small aquatic crustaceans commonly called water fleas because of their saltatory swimming style (although fleas are insects and thus only very distantly related). They live in various aquatic environments ranging from acidic swamps to freshwater lakes, ponds, streams and rivers.

Larvae: Although adult echinoderms (sea stars and kin) we are used to seeing have radial symmetry, their larvae start out with bilateral as do most vertebrates. These larval brittle stars are an important pelagic stage for dispersal of their bottom-bound parents. They capitalize on the abundance of food in the plankton to support early growth prior to metamorphosis and settlement to the sea floor. This pair is just over 1mm across, and tend to be found in the upper ocean, most commonly over…
