Case of the Week 422

Here is another lovely photograph from Florida Fan - a straight forward ID for those of you studying for boards or your Trop Med exam.

This object was observed in a stool specimen from a middle-aged man from India. It measures approximately 30 microns in diameter.

Identification?
