I am reposting in and attempt to get a definitive ID on the rostrum . Thanks to AL Dente I believe it is a billfish rostrum his thoughts were Istiphoridae or Xiphiorhynchus Kimblocki . A Google search has not yielded much information on my quest to positively ID the rostrum. I am asking for something that may be difficult or impossible to do without a hand on inspection but a definitive ID would be awesome. Any information would be appreciated thanks
