fossil in vale of belvoir

Hello all,

 

Found this fossil? In Nottinghamshire with bivalves, ammonite and gryphea

Not sure where to begin with it, seems to show 4 clear panels arranged in a kite from above. I'm thinking along a coral/plant line?

      I can't quite get to grips with it my mind; please could you post some further photos - end-on and in close-up; please also give an indication of scale.

       

      Also, where exactly? Town/ street/ postcode/ description.

      Give me a good enough locality descriptor and I may get a better handle on the strata it came from.

       

      Mike

    Hello Rubyrock

    I think you have found the bottom half of a Pinna sp bivalve.

    We have found many on the Holderness coast, the best one i have attached an image I hope it's ok.
