Description:Under a very low magnification of 10X, this image depicts an enlarged left lateral view of a clam shrimp, Eulimnadia texana, that had been found inhabiting a freshwater weatherpool atop Stone Mountain, located in Dekalb County, Georgia.
The clam shrimp inhabits shot-lived freshwater environments throughout the Southeastern United States. This organism’s reproductive activities take place in a very unique manner known as androdioecy, where males mate with hermaphroditic partners, for there are no pure females in the population. After mating, if the puddle environment dries up, the eggs will remain dormant, yet viable until the next rainfall.
