Riverside Fairy Shrimp (Streptocephalus wootoni)

The Riverside fairy shrimp measures less than an inch long and is found only in vernal pools, ponds, and other ephemeral pool-like bodies of water. During dry periods, cysts of the species lay dormant in the soil and hatch when adequate rainfall fills the ponds and pools.
