Interesting... I could see this being mistaken for a bivalve (as I would have done).... Looks quite different from the ones you see from Morocco etc.

 I never heard of it before either, Jim.  Yeah, it is rare. First one I've come across.  Scott ID'd it for me.

I thought it was a bivalve at first. This is super tiny, though. The tiny bivalves I see are usually not this ornamented.  Thanks for having a look, Eric.
