Help with small mesh screen / filter ID

I'm trying to identify a filter / screen scrounged from a junk box

I think it's some sort of tank breather and is about 20mm diameter x 40mm
long with a coarse threaded end molded in white plactic (nylon?). I'm
wanting to find a source of these as a screen for some humidity sensors.
I've thumbed through some catalogs with pneumatic / hydraulic and plumbing
fittings without success.
Thanks for any ideas.

That's kind of what I thought until I did the math---the thing is about 3/4" x 1 1/2". Way too small for a well strainer. Maybe something for a chemical sprayer? Suction strainer for a Sure-Flo or Flo-Jet pump?

Thanks for the replies Nick,Bill. It is pretty small, most of the pump and plumbing strainers I've found have been huge in comparison. I'd hoped someone would recognise it as some common hydraulic inlet screen or a "beer making accessory"......
It's had a groove turned near the end of the thread and it looks like a lip or shoulder may have been machined off the nylon adjacent to the screen. I'll keep looking! Thanks for the suggestions. R.

You might check inlet strainers for some of the lawn and garden sprayers.

Several years ago I replaced the filter for my motorcycle at the time that goes inside the gas tank. It was about the same diameter, maybe a bit smaller but at least that long. It had a tube inside it (the mesh) for "reserve supply" purposes giving it the extra length. The whole thing attached to the regular-reserve-off petcock and was stuck inside the gas tank when put in place.
It had a pretty fine mesh, but you could see through it. It is probably still around somewhere (the old one)... So you might have an old fuel filter made to fit inside a gas tank. I think I've seen this used on generators and other similar type applications.

========= Try your car parts store. this could be a screen that goes on the pickup tube in the gas-tank.

Good idea, anything connected to motorcycles raises the price of parts at least 3 fold...
I just wanted to pass on another idea as to what it might be, surely not where you would want to source it from :)

Thanks guys, I've been looking at soap/chemical/detergent strainers for pressure wash guns. There are some very similar looking parts, I may just find it yet! regards R.
