Where did the ID come from.

You can put me down as dubious, at least without a closer look at some sort of texture.

Hi Rockwood it was from somone who is very experienced collecting in the area and he has seen similar ones before . Myself i was stumped didnt know what i was looking at never seen anything like it . If you have any other thoughts I would be interested . This is by far the strangest fossil i have seen.

It does look very interesting. Anything further is over my head though.
