Case of the Week 404

This week's case was generously donated by Florida Fan. This structure was found in a concentrated stool specimen from a teenage male. It measures approximately 45 micrometers in diameter (shown at 400x total magnification). Identification?

I think it is non bile stain parasite, since there's no further information I think it Hymenolepis nana from the hooks and the polar filaments,

Hymenolepis nana. The polar thickenings are seen, as well.
