Hi everyone, I have this opal bivalve for around a year now I think, but I didn't really bother to look for an ID before. But I recently ordered an opal belemnite so I am thinking on making some new ID cards and I would like to make one for this bivalve as well The bivalve was found in the Bulldog Formation,Coober Pedy, Australia (Early Cretaceous, 135 mya) I am not sure if the photo's are clear enough, but it is the typical bivalve you see often from Coober Pedy, just can't find anything on them. Thank you in advance!
