ID - Large mollusc

Hello all - final one!

 

The final of 3 curios from my day at Barton. I hadnt found a shell fragment of this size in this location before - Im wondering if anyone can have a punt of the species it arises from? Thanks everyone!

    I'd take a punt on Ostrea.

    In which case, it would probably be one of

    Oo. dorsata, plicata, gigantea or cf. tenera (from the list here)

     

    (The related Cubitostrea and Striostrea have also been recorded from Barton, but I lean towards Ostrea.)
