    I think this is actually a #Copepod in a jump position. Yes, we were told they are Shrimps at first and were classifying them so for at least 2 years.

    I think you're right. I used to mark these as copepods (calanoid copepods take this form) until I was told to mark them as shrimp.

    Me too. Some of the scientists told us they are shrimps but then I found an animation showing a copepod jump and there was such a phase.

    I don't know what they want us to mark them but I've started marking them as Copepods since then.I can't find the post with the animation 😦

    Anyway, I am sorry you were misled from a probably correct classification before.

    So, the tail is at the bottom. Is this an accurate visualization of this one's position (at the end of the animation)?

    Copepod is offscreen at the end of the animation. Google calanoid copepods and scroll through the images. You'll see some like this and some

    Thanks - when I watched it on You tube it didn't go off the screen like that. My first search didn't show any in this position.

    @yshish, will the field guide be updated for this?

    Not sure about update possibilities. Would have to ask.
