I think this might be a fossilised jellyfish imprint of a Middle Cambrian cnidarian jellyfish which could be referred to the order Semaeostomae and it could be referred to the class Scyphozoa. I might be wrong but I am pretty sure that this is a jellyfish but I am not that sure on the species of the jellyfish, the order which it belongs to and the class it belongs to. I am definitely sure that this is not a fossilised eye but instead the imprint of a jellyfish. If it is a Middle Cambrian cnidarian jellyfish then it would be from around 543 to 485.4 million years old and it would be from the Palaeozoic era. I hope this helps.

Don't know anything about the stratigraphy of Utah but it looks like a crinoid calyx to me.

The side with the circle of lines on (first picture) looks alot like a jellyfish however the other side with the black disc doesn’t look at all like a jellyfish, confusing...
