Hiya all,

I have been having a go through an old bag of bits gathered from Runswick a couple of years back, and I thought I had a very large 'squiddy-bit'... But now I done a needle point for four hours and a quick buff, looks like lots of clams piggybacking?

Any ID greatly welcome, thank you.

Thanks very much 'nomadiclifeguide' & 'prep01'... AHH ha! So it was the squiddly bit I assumed! Is this, at two inch wide a larger than normal Phragmacone? I have seen them about an inch or less width-wise... So how big was the beast this came from?
