    One for the experts I'm afraid, but it would help them if you could provide the approx. size of the fossil as there is no frame of reference in the photos.

        Hmm - I'm not sure about the tooth idea. Is it hollow? I wonder if its a type of Bryozoan though I dont usually see much from the Carboniferous.

            Yes - my ID was pretty uncertain so I took the liberty to pass it onto someone who does know about Lower Carboniferous fossils - he ID'd it as a palatal fish tooth. I think he was going to look up the species so I'll update you if he does.
