    I found this washed up around shells of the yorktown formation zone 1 which is late miocene to early pliocene I think, anyone know what it is?

    @hunter-thurmond  Poop!  It looks like a fecal string to me.  I found crap like that (pun intended) in my screenings at Venice Beach years ago.

    Might be a negative mold of a worm burrow, but I think coprolite is equally likley

    It also resembles internal molds of turritella sp. but they are more tightly coiled.  Were there any Miocene mollusks with super thick coiled shells or gaps in the coil?
