Hello all Here is a companion query for help. This item is flat, tapered to the top and slightly concave from the underside. The two pictures are a top view and a bottom view. It is about 2” thick. The scaliness, if there is such a word, looks like Exogyra, but does not have the curved narrow end described for Exogyra. I assumed this was a flat mollusk shell when I picked it up (E of Capital Reef, south of Rt 24, about 4 miles outside the park) but can’t find a match with the limited references I have. Help appreciated. Thanks. Tom
Hello all, I’d appreciate help with two sets of oyster fossils from Capital Reef, Utah. This post has one object, another post will have the other, due to photo size constraints. These were collected to the E of Capital Reef, in south of Rt 24, 4.2 miles outside the park, on a road heading south. From other discussion, I see references to a limited range of species found here, some posts on the Forum and other places, say they find a single species (Pycnodonte). I think I have something different.The pictures on this post are a cluster rounded oblong shapes, ranging from about 1” to somewhat larger. The picture is from the top and from the bottom. Any help appreciated. Thanks. Tom
