And shell identification, maybe?

Also would like to know what species is this shell and how old, maybe?

Got this also around 20 years ago, from the Carpathians.

Guess this is very old, also. when there were no Carpathians Mountains, I guess.

      Re: And shell identification, maybe?

      Hi Robert, this is some sort of scallop (Pectenid bivalve). The age of the rocks is difficult to determine if there is no locality data attached to the specimen and the wings (which are helpful in diagnosis) are not complete. Sorry not to be able to be more helpful.

      Best wishes,

      Fiona
