    Any ideas on this? I am an archaeologist, but people occasionally bring me fossils to ID. These are in a collection someone brought in recently. I appreciate any help I can get on it. Thanks!

    Hi @joe-blondino! I showed your post to FOSSIL team member @vperez, and he identified your specimens as sting rays mouth plates (genus Aetobatus). There are some pictures of complete specimens (and an artist’s recreation of the sting ray) here: https://www.calvertmarinemuseum.com/335/Fossil-Teeth

    Thanks @Sadie Mills and @vperez! Funny that you should post a link to the Calvert Marine Museum, as I’m guessing that these were probably collected from Chesapeake Group formations.
