This appears to be a harvestman of some kind. It was eating another arthropod (you can see it in this picture). However, it only has six legs! Has it lost the other two?

Description

A ciliate that resembles an Easter egg. This one was found in a natural pond intermittently connected to the Gatineau river by a culvert.

The colourful cytoplasm consists mainly of food vacuoles containing cyanobacteria in various phases of digestion. The cytostome (cell mouth) is supported by a cytopharyngeal basket composed of stiff microtubular rods (at the anterior right, from cell's perspective). The cell has numerous spindle-shaped trichocysts, visible here as short black lines.

Description

From the bark of a live hornbeam tree in mixed forest, Wakefield, QC. Sessile sporangia, ochraceous to light brown; in small spheres about 400 μm in diameter (or smaller), and cylindrical bodies about 870 μm long. Spores 10-12.5 μm. Capillitium in ropy strands with swellings and large bladder-like attachments. I think this is Trichia contorta var. karstenii, but I don't know much about slime moulds and would be grateful for any further information.
