Fossil forum, 


I recently found an interesting fossil. I was thinking coral or bryozoan, but was unable to identify it correctly. It is from the Leighton Fm Maine (again), which is Silurian. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Here are some pictures of it:

Bryozoan or arthropod, would be my guess. 
Not aware of cartilage showing up in the Silurian, but I could be wrong.  

I would go ahead and try to split that further.
