Found this fossil in North Texas dallas area (grapevine lake).  No clue but resembles turtle shell?  It's small - about 2-3 inches across.

Looks like an echinoid (urchin) fragment  (piece of test)

Maybe Cidaridae:  Stereocidaris? (Or Phyllacanthus?)

Hard to say with a partial specimen, but based on the location and geology, I like Phyllacanthus.
