If the shells are hollow, tapered and open only on the large end, scaphopods do look like a good bet.  Separate a few and make thin sections—might help to decide.

Look like Scaphopods, Plagioglypta canna has been reported from the Permian.

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?
