Thanks Doren, but I do also love the long Lepidostrobolphyllum majus that I also found yesterday.

Yes, not bad for a frond that has not seen the light of day in about 300 MY.

I think since we're still uncertain what this intriguing find may be, we could probably call it an uncertain trace fossil. I can edit it if you wish. :) 

I had this looked at by a local paleontologist that specializes in the Ordovician here in Minnesota. He didn't feel this was a trace fossil. Can you change the description to something like "Unidentified echinoderm (possible starfish larva or larval crinoid holdfast)" or whatever you feel might be appropriate? Thanks a bunch!
