Hello! I would need some help identifying microorganisms from a sample of water from Sphagnum moss. It's a just-for-fun, amateur microscopy trip that I took with my daughter a few time ago, and I ended up posting it on Youtube, but it'd be awesome if I could pinpoint some of the microorganisms in the video:

It was suggested to me that 0:33 is C. elegans; and I guess that 0:40 is some ciliate?

Any help is welcome, thank you!

it looks like a nematode , thats pretty sure, but whether its C. elegans or another one? Who knows.

The ciliate, yeah, I think so too.

 

What magnification did you use? And you published it? How do you mean?


If you don't know it, then ask it! Better to ask and look foolish to some than not ask and stay stupid.

Is 0:47 Carteria crucifera? I read Carteria are present in Sphagnum moss.

I'm sorry, I meant I "posted" it on Youtube. Lost in translation. My bad. I actually don't know how I could write "published" there. I feel kind of embarrassed now.

It sure does look like it..

But I am not an expert on this.
