Please help identify the attached.

Roadside cut in Butler KS included fusilinids and bryozoans

Other specimen appears to have two appendages.

Looks like a spiny Productid. Pretty cool!

Can you tell what stratum you were in?

Unfortunately, I found the specimen with the attached in a jumble of rock at the base of a road cut so layer is unknown. Also, I did not realize how great this find turned out to be until later so I did not record the GPS.Please see the attached.

The fusilinids were attached to something that seems to be a very large plant stem or...a bone. I found six pieces of this material close together in the jumble.

I could have loaded the truck with specimens from this site.
