Hi to all, my name is Tommy from Romania, and I am a newbie on fossiel.net.
I have found this (see picture) in a quarry near the city of Brasov in Romania.
I think that it is a Inoceramid, but I am not sure. It was inside a big concretion. The dimension of the specimen is 20cm in lenght aprox. In the same location I found some echinoid spines and ammonite fragments. Can you help me to exactly identify this?

I wish it wasn't true

What is strange about that ''thing'' that I found is that there was no trace of any kind of shell material, just the riples on both sides of the concretion in wich i find it.
Meanwile somebody told me that it could be a tracefossil - Zoophycos.
