    Is the object near center a pteropod?

    I'd call it a #Copepod

    This is a different species than we've seen in this position before, so tough call! I agree with yshish.

    If not a Copepod, than another Crustacean, may be even Shrimp :] Can't tell.

    Most shrimp have a fan-like tail not a bifid tail.

    It just reminds me of a guy who was IDed by the scientists as a Shrimp however we would call it a Copepod 😕

    I never got my answer from joirisson, but I think they include krill (mysids & euphausids) with shrimp, but they are different orders.

    Yes, they do. That's why I'm not always sure which crustaceans to mark as Shrimps but do what I remember they asked me to.
