Unknown Pollywoggish Fossil

Ordovician

Galena Formation

When I brought it home I thought it might be a complete crinoid (My dream!), but it seems to have two eyes (or I have a fertile imagination) and a tail like a pollywog. I scrubbed it really good with a stainless steel brush then finished with a tooth brush. But I really don't have a clue...

Any ideas would be welcome because I'm clueless. Looks like a fossil to me, but...

Thanks for looking! :)

The more I learn, I realize the less I know.

:wacko:

may be a cystoid, still covered by a little dolostone. Some prep could clear that up.
