description  
The latest thinking about these dark organic traces preserved within the lower liassic nodules, is that there could be the traces of Holothurian (Sea cucumber) entrails. The sea cucumbers are known to eviscerate themselves when stressed or to avoid capture by predators. This split pair has stunning detail especially under magnification. This is one of the finest specimens we have seen of this Proplematica fossil. Discovered in 2005.
