fossil bug?


I wonder what this fossil might be, is it a bug? Do you have any ideas?

Thanks a lot

by the way thanks a lot for your great help (Mike, Museum Staff, and all of you who are helping amatours like myself to identify their findings)

    Hello 1bear!

    Please tell us where you found this fossil? (so that we can suggest an age).

    From the photograph it look like a section of crinoid stem. Is the cross-section circular, I cannot quite see from the image? Are the lines inbetween the apparent stripes wiggly/ripply?

    I will await your reply before adding more information about crinoids .... if you are interested?

    All the best,

      Let me just add another question to Fiona's:

      is it cylindrical (parallel-sided) or does it taper (even if only slightly)?
