I have found a couple of fossils from the Lower chalk,White Nothe,Dorset today.
In the first picture the larger two are Inoceramus sp but I am not sure of the smaller wide bivalve's ID.
In the second picture there is another of this wide bivalve on the upper left, a smaller bivale on the upper right and a small
gastropod(Bathrotomeria sp?) on the lower right.
Could anyone help me with the IDs of the smaller bivalves?
This provides useful timespan and images for Cretaceous bivalves
But it doesn't help with your smaller bivalves. They look familiar but I can't bring a name to mind.
Bathrotomeria - yes, probably; perhaps Bathrotomeria reticulata

Thanks for the information.
I would have a look through to see if I can find any matches.
