Unknown Late Ordivician Fossil, Glyptocystitid Rhombiferans?

I found this fossil at a road cut a few miles north of St. Leon, Indiana. It's composed of many strands that are 1/32 of an inch wide and about 2 1/2 inches long. The strands appear to be segmented as well. The segments range in size from 1/32" to 1/8" long. I believe its the brachioles from a Glyptocystitid Rhombiferans because I found a picture on the Dry Dredgers website that looks similar. Attached are the best pictures from two tries and the picture from the Dry Dredgers website.
