This specimen has me stumped. I have a photo from the book Fossils For Amateurs by Russell P. MacFall and Jay C. Wollin and on page 258 they have a photo of a variety of brachiopod, atrypa specimens that looks distinctly like mine. However, I haven’t been able to confirm that with any other corroborating source through internet searches.
Looking for some help on whether this is, in fact, a true fossil find or a pseudofossil.
My son found it on Holden Beach, NC. I have another confirmed fossil specimen from this same beach, Hardounia mortonis, echinoid, late Cretaceaous, 66-68ma. It came from the Rocky Point member of the PeeDee formation that is common in this area.
Thanks for the help.
