Just to add though, I am not sure that would be too good.

As the light from the flash is aimed forward, beauty dishes rely on wide lighting from a bulb sent sideways for reflection. There are also bowens mounted dishes that have a front (backward facing) reflector that would work ok with the config I posted above.

Thanks for the links. But I need a mini-dish that will fit directly on to the flash head, not on a tripod. I know they are not as good as real beauty dishes, but I need a very portable version for event photography that sends a circular beam out.

Like a snoot you mean?

I have a snoot already. Looking for a mini dish recommendation, like 7" diameter. But it has to fit on the Sony 58 flash.
