Sea fossils small but beautifully formed

by Fiona
(Central America)

Found on a beach in Panama, Central America. They are small and difficult to photograph well.
They are black/dark brown and appear to be layered with an obvious central line and two reddish spots on top. The second one is similar, you can see what appears to be squashed layers. I have seen one other similar fossil but lost it in the waves! Any ideas would be brilliant as I am struggling to identify them. Thanks!

Looks like park of a Burr Fish mouth plate. It's in beautiful condition. Great find!

The photo is too small for me to get much detail. Sorry.
