Media notes
individual 4 Mark Angelos: appears to have “porenwarzen”; perhaps a Eucypridinae as opposed to a Cyprinotinae. If you have more specimens you can distinguish the two by looking at the anterior/posterior margins of the valves for pustules (raised tissue?) and looking at the seta on the basal segment of the walking leg (5th limb?) and uropod. see Meisch pg 271. But I always worry about missing Cypricercinae so you may want to look for a Triebel loop Meisch pg 270.
