    #prostist. the Solmaris do not have this spiky texture and you would see eye lashes like tentacles all around the bell

    it is a #protist. this guy that is textured like a honey-comb is most likely a foraminifera...but no need to mark this one

    it might even be a phytoplankton (plant-like) protist such as a coccolithophore.
