Nut like?

by Rob Aron

I found this in southeast Utah. It was in a late Cretaceous pebble conglomerate near Hovenweep National Monument. I found it securely attached to the conglomerate matrix. The fossil exhibits a bilateral symmetry and angular, regular features. It is still partially embedded in a pebble.
