Hi all, So, here are a bunch of fossil bittersweet clams (Glycymeris) from different locations. So far they are all labeled as "Glycymeris" (which I'm pretty sure is correct). But I would really like to put a species name on each of them. Therefore I am reaching out to you all, because hopefully you will be able to help me sort this out! 1) Glycymeris from Westerschelde, Netherlands; from the late Pliocene (2.5 million years old). I'm thinking G. radiolyrata, but I'm not sure... 2) Glycymeris from Westerschelde, Netherlands; from the late Pliocene (2.5 million years old). G. obovata maybe? Or G. variabilis???
Hi all, Today at a flea market I purchased a small handful of shells found on the Kaloot (NL), where you can find fossil sharkteeth as well as fossil seashells (and other fossils). He assured me that at least some (if not all) are fossils, which is true: the Pliothyrina in the middle is extinct, so it has to be a fossil; and many of the astartes on the bottom seem to be fossilized too. But I'm not sure that all the shells are fossilized. Therefore I was wondering, does anyone know how to separate fossil shells from modern ones? Best regards, Max
Hello there, Does anyone have know the species of this fossil bivalve? I'm thinking Glycymeris, but have no clue of the species name. I bought it yesterday in a small shop in Zeeland (Netherlands). The seller says he had found it in Kaloot (Zeeland, Netherlands), meaning it comes from the Pleistocene. What do you think? Best regards, Max
