    Sage Johnson has contributed a new specimen to myFOSSIL!

    • That looks like a brachiopod, which are not clams. The valve (shell) looks symmetrical, and the strong fold in the middle (called the fold) is characteristic of a brachiopod. The shell on the other side should also have a corresponding depression to the fold, called the sulcus.

    • Canada 2 dollar piece diameter is 28mm

    • Hi @sage-johnson. This is a brachiopod (lamp shell) in the order Atrypida. Can you update this information for the eMuseum curators please? Thanks!
