Hi Derek,

I've always called them Disk Diatoms. There are probably multiple species, but that's way beyond my pay grade.

Some form of plankton?

Last night at Redondo, viz seemed worse than normal. In addition to the normal summer goop, there was non-sand particulate that sorta looked like mud that clouded things up. Looking through my photos, I found that I got some of that particulate in focus as well as you could for something the small. At least sharp enough to make out the basic cylindrical structure. Anyone have a clue what these things are?
