Default Washing yeast, please help ID my layers

Hi, washing some Wyeast 1968 (high flocculator like WLP002). Thinking my yeast is the middle layer (the smoother tan layer, right below the liquid.). Do you agree?

If I can't figure how to post a photo from this iPhone app, I'll post it in reply.

Thanks for your help.

there is yeast throughout the container but the bottom layer has lots of trub/hops.

Ok, I'll be more specific: It's the middle layer I am trying to save, right? Yes, I know there is yeast throughout, but if you had to call one of them the yeast layer, what would it be?
