spain fossils

I found these fossils in mudstone in Andalucia near to the Subbetica Mountain.  I have put this on Fossil Discusions but have 47 looks and no reply.

 

Can anybody identify the bivalve and "worm"??

    Hi Tony

    Sorry you have not had any response.  I have tweaked your images (see below) but it would help to know what age and environment of deposition the rocks are - can you identify this from this website?

    Bivalve: Would help to know if Mesozoic or Cenozoic and marine or non-marine - there are so many species...

    Hard to say if this internal cast is Gastropod, Ammonite or Serpulid (my slight preference)

    Again more general info may help.

    Hard to see what this could be - ammonite fragment???  (hence age would help)

    Hard to say much more  - they need a hands-on opinion.

    [I assume you mean Fig 5 not 4 and Fig 11 not 1?]

     

    Maybe you could take them to the nearest geology museum - is this it?
