Again a marine diatom: Thalassiosira rotula.
During winter time I can often find it in plankton.

Really cool. I have never seen them though. Are they common in the Pacific too?

Beautiful diatoms.

Your recent shots make me want to try a few winter samples over here, but I'll wait for a day that's about 15 degree warmer than it has been. :wink:
