Could they represent some oblique sections of some larger foraminifera?

Thank you very much for the PDF. Someone else gave me a reference to that same paper a few days ago. It is an excellent paper, but the tubes. I have are definitely not made by serpulids. I did send a message with a link to a few photographs. Maybe you did not see that: http://dreamsandnightmaresmagazine.blogspot.com/2017/01/fossil-microscopic-encrusting-tubular.html

If these photographs give you any ideas, I would be grateful to hear what they are. Also, if you want to see more examples, I can add some more photographs.

Thanks,
David

Is anyone on this list familiar with these? I do not mean serpulids. I have found some tubes that are substantially smaller than serpulids and I don't know what they are.
