the difference in H.nana and H.diminuta lies in it's size and polar filaments.
H. diminuta is bigger and has no polar filaments.
In this case I don't see these polar filaments. (unfortunately can't operate the microscope).
The size is conform H. diminuta.
Is there a rodentproblem in the neighborhood ?
