Can some one telle me what king of gammarus this is?
It's found in The Netherlands.
Is it a gammarus pulex or a gammarus trigrinus?
The size was about 2 cm when stretched.
greetings and tight lines.

Hello RenÚ, I'm no expert but I don't think i would be able to make a species determination from the photos you have provided. Some of the characters required to do so are not visible. But someone here may have more experience with European Gammarus species than I do (I have none). I've only dealt with Eastern North American species. And even that experience has been limited.
