Kitchen table prep: Mariella brazoensis (?)

Picked this guy up at a fossil shop in Glen Rose, Texas, supposedly collected locally, so I'm just guessing at the ID since I'm not up on Texas fossils. Pretty worn, but quite big...it must weigh two pounds, and I thought it would make a nice display piece.

Interesting...I found a piece of Cephalopod on a roadcut near Glen Rose when I was a teen and always thought it was just a Turrilites of some sort. Is there a way to distinguish between these genera?
