If you go to get it out, I'd get a shop vac and reduce the large vacuum opening down to a 3/8 clear hose to fit into the fishing hole. If you can get you some pantyhose (no judging here ) put it the large vac hose like a screen to stop your O ring from going into vacuum trashland. The O ring may just stick to the 3/8 hose if you have a good vac.
I've had to fish the craziest crap out of the craziest places. I can thank my wife for the training.

|snowhite444||It 100% will swell up and break down, it takes time don't get me wrong but I literally just did and oil pan the other day that we found the old dipstick adapter oring inside swollen and broken down|

I sill say, don't see any consequence of a small O-ring remaining in the pan

|snowhite444||get something to fish it out or take the pedestal completely off turn it over n shake it out, ya definitely don't want it going into your pan because after awhile it will break down and could possibly start clogging your pick up tube.|

|greenskeeper||Doesn't that large hole return to the pan? That o-ring will just float around in the crankcase doing no harm.|

I'm going to assume that the larger hole is the Return (drain back into sump). So, what's going to happen to that sm O-ring? Where's it going to end-up that's harmful?
Interesting problem, retrieving would be best of course but I'm not sure I'd panic if you couldn't
