Can anyone identify these bits I found today on the Dorset coast? Are the poo-shaped one real coprolites or pseudo coprolites or something completely different?! And are the ones that look like porcupine quills belemnites?

Is this part of a tree or just a weird mineral formation?

Hi HLB
The 'coprolites' are pyrite nodules which can take on all kinds of weird shapes. The others are bits of ammonite and belemnite and your tree is probably a bit of mudstone/limestone with calcite mineralization. 

Cheers
