Hi All!

Could you please help me to ID this specimen that was found 2019, Miami Beach, Gold Coast, QLD, Australia.

I'm hoping it is turtle coprolite from the pliocene. 

I have other pieces if that would help. 

Thank in advance!

Looks more like part of an Ophiomorpha nodosa burrow, to me. :unsure:

I'm thinking Ophiomorpha as well. Rather than little coprolite pellets, these are likely crustacean spitballs. :)
