Jurrasic uncertainty

Found while fossicking for belemnites at the mouth of the Waikato River. South Side of Sunset beach. First picked as a belemnite but the curvature and lack of distinct central rings gave me pause.

Could be a trace fossil. The result of burrowing by an invertebrate.

Had a feeling it may be a trace, thought I should leave it open as I'm a bit novice on this. Thanks kindly Rockwood

I agree it looks like a trace. I'd love to see some NZ belemnites!

Thanks TqB! It was a pretty stormy day so couldn't spend much time there, but found a couple of fragmented pieces

Thank you! Nice furrow - Belemnopsis I guess, if they're both the same.
