From the Hell Creek Formation of Montana, these specimens are fossilized insect cocoons that were found among the bones of a Hadrosaur Dinosaur. They are from a species of insect that thrived around the rotting carcasses of dead dinosaurs and are often found between the ribs suggesting they crawled into the rib cage of the carcass to pupate.
