Dear Paleonet users,

We recently found abundant small tube-shaped fossil shells from Permian
rocks in eastern Australia (as shown in the image below). I was told that
they might be the shells of a type of foraminifera. However, some of my
colleagues do not agree.

Could you give me any of your opinions about the fossils?
