Hi enclosed photo from a video clip my brother took on the beach at lower largo beside leven east scotland in the springtime this year, hes found fossiled calamites on the beach but on this day the stormy weather stripped all the sand off the sandstones and revealed lots of these jellyfish like round patches, the sand has now returned and they are covered again so you cant see them now, i would be interested to see what anyone thinks they are???

Reminds me of the bleached halos and stains related to the presence of radioactive nodules in the Permian beds of South Devon.

I think algae need sunlight and these things apparently are usually buried. Were they 3D or confined to bedding planes?

Hi,

Not knowing the age of the rock or how it was formed I would contact the local geology group. As nearby rock had the same colour but not the shape I would guess it more than likely has a geological origin.
It would be fascinating to find out if it is some kind of fossil or not.
