A little hopper ~4-5mm long.
You'll notice our specimen has lost one of it's middle feet.
With very dark specimens like these we bump up brightness to highlight details, making the background unrealistically bright. It can be considered a camera artifact and highlights the need to be careful when considering colours in photo's.
