conical shell?

Recommended Posts

Hi to all,

              I've been trying to find a positive id for this one for some time now, my guess is that it could be a partial conical  shell with remains of the animal still inside it.

The inner 'shell' and contents are pyrited (iron), found in Wiltshire,England in a predomately chalk and flint with a very thin topsoil area, iron pyrite nodules are very common in this location.

 

Than you

Tony

Ironstone concretion, but it seems quite probable it's also a burrow (ichno) fossil.
