Telaepolella

I found this specimen attached to the cover glass of a three days old wet mount kept in a moisture chamber. It moved slowly, had a lot of contractile vacuoles and about a dozen of nuclei. Small granules where streaming through the cytoplasm, but not into the filopodia. Nuclei 3.6-5.2 µm, spherical to ovoid. It came from a shallow ditch with stagnant water in Gaasterland, the Netherlands.
This is probably the same species as the other Telaepolella on this site.

Telaepolella
The same cell as above, but 5 hours earlier. The cluster of bacteria at the top is a reference point for its movement,
Telaepolella
At least seven nuclei are visible, three are arrowed
