Crinoid, coral, plant or geological formation?
VStergios posted a topic in Fossil IDFound these formations on the limestone of the southernmost shores of Alonissos, Greece (below the aptly named camping Rocks). I took some shots of the formations and collected pebbles from a nearby cove bearing the same characteristics. Any suggestions regarding their origin would be much appreciated, especially since there is little documentation on the island geology (according to the only geological map I could find these are neogene formations, yet there are certain geologists who, after visiting the island, suggest this could be a generalisation).
Planorbis freshwater gastropods?
VStergios posted a topic in Fossil IDFound this mortality plate in the thin compact layer between neogene conglomerates and marl, above the flysch, at Milia beach in Alonissos island, Greece. According to a paper regarding the neogene in Alonissos [ http://sciencepress.mnhn.fr/sites/default/files/articles/pdf/g2019v41a3.pdf ] findings from marl deposits in an abandoned lignite quarry near Votsi village include Planorbis freshwater gastropods. Have I also found planorbis gastropods? Am I looking at Miocene or Pliocene fossils? As always any suggestions are much appreciated!
