Baculogypsina sphaerulata Foraminifera

Baculogypsina sphaerulata foraminifera found on the island of Guam. Image is magnified 23 times under a microscope which should equate to a 2 mm field of view. I think these creatures are also known as star sand.

Thanks to Pam for obtaining the specimen and Herb for the processed material.
