I found this fossil associated with crinoid fragments, a fish spine, and corals. The location was a small canyon in the Cottonwood Mountains of Death Valley. Collecting is not allowed, so unfortunately I have only the one field photograph. Any ideas? It's small; length is about 1.5 cm, a little over half an inch.
