That's a Graptolite, preserved by...trace fossil, I believe. They work well as index fossils because they became extinct in the Ordovician extinction.

They are preserved by carbon film

They are index fossils because they had a wide geographic range (because they were planktonic) and they lived for a short period of time

I would say kingdom Protista, but their both right. You are right, but the person who posted it isn't replying so I'm just verifying so you can go.

Ok. Are Protista and Protozoa the same thing? I think I read that somewhere.
