Pupae or seeds, floating in pond?

Calling all plant and freshwater invertebrate experts. Is this a seed or a pupae?


My freshwater guide doesn't include it, but I keep finding them floating in the pond at the moment.

When I accidently squeezed one yesterday something like milky goo sprayed out, much to my disgust! This made me wonder if in fact these were pupae.

Thanks for any thoughts you can offer!
