Interesting.
Did you collect them yourself?
What size are they?
Zeiss Standard WL (somewhat fashion challenged) & Wild M8
Olympus E-P2 (Micro Four Thirds Camera)

Hello RR,
My wife collected them from Mombasa beach. The ones I measured were between 250 and 400 µm.
Greetings,
Hans

Thank you,hans , for these sweet 'forams' images. Wonderful and very important 'bottom dwellers' (benthic foraminifera), and floating ( planktonic foraminifera) forams..fantastic behaviors, complex life cycles at times...and often relatively huge protozoas! Charlie Guevara...nowhere near to marine environments,
