This one is demonically hard, so open to everyone. And their PIs.
We really desperately need some outbreeding here, so please someone NOT affiliated (past or present) with a certain dep't get it!
Due Sunday sometime. Beer reward* until too many hints have been dispensed (which is at my discretion =P)
*That is, if/when it is able to be collected, and if/when I'm actually able to afford it. Alternatively, you could hire me and then the beer would be very easy to obtain. That's always an option. Srsly.
If it helps at all, an epic description of this creature:
"Looks a little like Giardia put through some medieval torture device. Or that thing on the Muppet Show that rearranged people's faces: "Here, I'll just grab your adhesive disc and stretch your posterior end over the top of that, and maybe chop off a couple of flagella, oh, and a funky divetty thing in the middle of the disc would look really neat too...."- Opisthokont
Kind of a Mr-Potato-Head approach to protist ID."
