    Ostrea digitalina (Dubois 1831)

    From the album: Gastropods and Bivalves Worldwide

    3cm. Florianer Schichten Middle Miocene From Fuggaberg, Styria, Austria Thanks to Franz Bernhard.
  2. Last Saturday , my regular fossil buddy and I took the kayaks out on the Caloosahatchee , trying to get a trip out before the river is covered in blue green algae once again. As we arrive at our spot to put in, the swirls of algae were already starting. Florida has a difficult problem it has been observing for years, with no solution. Under our new legislator, perhaps something will be done...at least they are throwing 30 million dollars at research to figure out how to solve the problem. But I digress, ( after all the problem is upsetting to anyone who uses the water....which is all of South

    Ostrea edulis

    From the album: The Mollusca of the Banjaard

    A small common oyster specimen, with a nice brown coloration. Fossil oyster shells can be frustratingly difficult to tell apart from modern specimens. Different oyster species can be very hard to recognize, but O. edulis is by far the most common, so it's usually a reasonably safe bet (the other species are rare Pliocene to Eocene species and are very rarely found). Status: still locally alive Fossil occurrence: common

    Ostrea edulis

    From the album: The Mollusca of the Banjaard

    A very small damaged oyster specimen. Fossil oyster shells can be frustratingly difficult to tell apart from modern specimens. Different oyster species can be very hard to recognize, but O. edulis is by far the most common, so it's usually a reasonably safe bet (the other species are rare Pliocene to Eocene species and are very rarely found). Note: this particular specimen is pretty cool, because it's a great example of bioimmuration. Can you see those weird lines on that shell on the left hand side? That's the imprint of another shell species (bivalve or gastropod) which t

    Rastellum or Agerostrea ?

    Hello, what do you think could it be ? It is about 20 cm in leght. Many thanks in advance!

    Ostrea, but what species?

    Hi all, What species of Ostrea do you think this is? My first thought was O. edulis, but I am wondering if it maybe isn't O. ventilabrum after all. In fact, how exactly can you differentiate the two different species? It was found on the Zandmotor, Netherlands. Most of the shells found here are (apart from modern) from the Eem Formation, Eemian, Pleistocene; 120'000 years old. And it would be this old if it is an O. edulis (which is a very common species). But maybe it is the rarer Eocene O. ventilabrum? I know that they do occur here too, but I never know

    Ostrea compressirostra

    Self collected from a bluff along the Tar River upstream of Tarboro N.C. This is a fairly common oyster in this deposit, but most are extremely brittle and crumble upon touching. Still looking for my first complete (double valve) specimen.

    Ostrea carinata?

    Hi everyone...can these be an Ostrea Carinata? I don't know the provenance. Thanks

    Ostreidae

    Very similar to A. falcate, but I hesitate to identify it as such because it is not hooked like O. falcata. It does not appear to be broken anywhere.

    Agerostrea (Ostrea) falcata

    This was found in the spoils from dredging the C&D Canal in the 1980s. Recent removal of spoils sand for road construction in the area exposed previously- inaccessible layers of sand. It is currently one of the most common finds at the site.

    Ostrea mesenterica

    This was found in the spoils from dredging the C&D Canal in the 1980s. Recent removal of spoils sand for road construction in the area exposed previously- inaccessible layers of sand. This species is not listed in the Delaware Geological Survey's bulletin about the fossils of the Canal. It is distinguished by its small size and non-plicate (no ridges) central area of the shell.

    Cubitostrea tecticosta

    This was found in the spoils from dredging the C&D Canal in the 1980s. Recent removal of spoils sand for road construction in the area exposed previously- inaccessible layers of sand. Originally identified as Ostrea tecticosta. It remains in the same family. Being much less common than its cousin O. falcata, this species is not listed in the Delaware Geological Survey's bulletin about the fossils of the Canal. It is distinguished by its large attachment point.

    Pycnodonte panda

    This was found in the spoils from dredging the C&D Canal in the 1980s. Recent removal of spoils sand for road construction in the area exposed previously- inaccessible layers of sand. Formerly known as Ostrea panda. It remains in the same Order. This species is not listed in the Delaware Geological Survey's bulletin about the fossils of the Canal. It is distinguished by its round shape. Pycnodontes are an extinct genus of oysters known as foam or honeycomb oysters.

    Ostrea quadriplicata

    Upper valve only. The genus of this has used several genera. Currently Peilinia is accepted (Kues, 1997) it has also been Ostrea and Lopha in several publications.

  23. I am new to the forum and this is my first time posting. I do appreciate the existance of the forum and look forward to exploring all it has to offer. So. On a recent trip to the C&D canal in Delaware, Reedy point to be exact, I found this 3/4 " fossil. I think it is Creataceous and I think it is an Ostrea. I have done some research and have not been able to pin this one down. Any thoughts? And thanks for any help. Edge view Side 1 view Side 2 view

    Triple Play

    This is a fossil I found recently in a creek in central Alabama. The length of the specimen is about 1.5 cm. It appears to be a worm tube on a type of Ostrea, on a unique matrix. The matix is about 8 mm thick and has a darker outer layer about 1 mm thick. I'm guessing it is geologic - the vertically oriented structure doesn't match any type of bone or shell I've seen. I appreciate your input. - Randy

    Oyster - Paleocene Aquia Fm Maryland

    ID help needed. I found this well-preserved, ornate, large oyster in Maryland's Paleocene Aquia Formation. Is this the common Ostrea compressirostra? The lower valve's outer surface is quite ornamented, with radial folding along the protruding thin edges of the concentric growth rings (see pics). The valve margins are slightly discordant. The adductor muscle scar impressions, on both valves, contains what appears to be a thin layer of non-calcareous fossilized tissue. Specimen dimensions: Weight: 36 ounces Lower valve: height 6.75 inches, length 6.75 inches, convexity 1.5 inches Upper
