Gooey Organisms in Sink Aerator are a Mystery

“I found these in the aerator of my bathroom sink”, writes Clifton in his submission regarding the gooey-looking creature pictured below. “The pictures are after they were not noticed and the aerator was placed in boiling water: due to a boiling advisory by the city. So the color may be different than when they were alive. Someone else found the same ones in their faucet and they claimed they were tapeworm larvae.” To start with, we want to thank Clifton for the excellent photo. Usually, such a photo, which is as crisp as this one, helps us identify the organisms we are looking at. In this case, it just shows us in greater detail that we have no idea what we are looking at.
