Fossil found in Charmouth

Odd flat leaf like fossil found on the beach below Stonebarrow. I think this might be from the green ammonite bed due to the rock colour and large number of crushed ammonites in the rest of the rock. Any thoughts on what this fossil may be?

    Im not an expert, but I think that little brown thing In the rock is either a coprolite or just another mineral in the rock.  Do you see any other fossils in the rock? If you do, it probably is a coprolite because the whole rock is fossiliferous.

      I absolutely agree with Tabfish.

      that is a bivalve

      try to avoid getting it wet else it wll dissolve and wash off.

      you could paint it with pva to stop it flaking off but just try to sstop it being rattled  too much.

      a lovely find
