Mystery Arthropod?

Recommended Posts

Found on a beach in Scotland. Matrix appears to be volcanic. Any clues?

Welcome to the Forum. :)

 

The matrix looks like water worn limestone or dolostone. 

I agree, crinoid stems in cross section.

Technically, these are not Petosky Stones.  

These appear to be water worn cobbles, with horn corals or other corals, as well as crinoidal limestone.

Some people may call these  cobbles with fossils from the great lakes Petosky stones, but unless they are Hexagonaria percarinata, they are not technically  Petoskey stones. ;)
