    I can’t open the link, but I believe it’s the video by PaleoCris? I saw it too, absolutely crazy. I believe Cris mostly hunts in the Nashua Formation (Pliocene) when it comes to shells, but I’m not too sure if this location is also from that formation.

    My favorite is Pentremites convexus, mainly because it’s the only blastoid in my collection… I wish there were some good blastoid hunting areas in the Netherlands!

    Same as the other one, looks like a bull/dusky shark tooth: Carcharhinus sp.

    Looks like a bull/dusky shark tooth. The genus is Carcharhinus, so you can label this tooth as Carcharhinus sp.

    My favorite time is a stage, more precisely the Eemian stage (interglacial stage in the Late Pleistocene about 120’000 years ago). Quite a young age, but man this is where you find the BEST bivalve fossils! 😀

    @carlos-solana-redondo yes you’re generally right but in this case the specimen(s) does appear to be modern and not fossilized. It still has its original shine and coloration, traits that are usually lost during fossilization. During fossilization it might acquire new colors/textures, but it will rarely keep all of its original features like is the case here. So I agree with @gloria-carr here, this is not a fossil specimen

    Looks like the typical Dastilbe crandalli that is very common from there. From the Ceára region, early Cretaceous. Nice one too

    Where is it from?

    @mackenzie-smith yeah it does look very similar (same family like you said), but the IDing problem is very straightforward here, just a change in genus name. Species stays the same. At the website (it seems to have a relatively large overview of all the different species), Dallarca subrostrata fits perfectly with the specimens here, and there is no mention of any Anadara species on that website (of course, more research could be done, but I’m relatively confident of the ID proposed here)

    I’m also happy it’s named after me XD

    Cool!!! Was it a common species (ie do many of the Californian mammoth specimens have to be relabeled) or a rare one (with only a couple specimens known)?

    Might wanna add: if the fossil is really a 3D specimen, post pictures from several different angles

    Yup, “fossil moonsnail” is good. If it’s the same species, the common (ie English) name doesn’t change between fossil and modern specimens, and this applies to most fossils

    Could it be some kind of coral maybe?

    Very nice! Looking at the Calvert Marine Museum that does seem to be the best fit. However the genus name is now Dallarca, so what you have is Dallarca subrostrata! It’s always cool to have fossils from old collections!
