I really have no idea what this is. It was in a rock depression in a fairly shady spot. Near tidal mudflats.It was about 5 cm across.
It was a fairly thick layer of whitish material, and it looks a bit like some algae growing on its surface.

Description from Wikipedia

Protozoa are a diverse group of unicellular eukaryotic organisms, many of which are motile. Originally, protozoa had been defined as unicellular protists with animal-like behavior, e.g., movement. Protozoa were regarded as the partner group of protists to protophyta, which have plant-like behaviour, e.g. photosynthesis.
