The specific density of the resting eggs of Leptodora kindtii is higher than that of lake water, which contrasts with earlier reports. Scanning electron microscopy (SEM) shows resting eggs of L. kindtii as smooth spheres covered with a thin scaly skin. Damaged eggs released foam-like grains which probably were embryonic cells. Details of the second antennae of the adults from SEM micrographs show featherlike bristles and hairs forming a fine net which function as paddles. The carapace of the adults is thorny on the abdomen but not on the head and thorax. The mouth is slightly protruding and the mouth opening is elongated.
