Hi everyone, Here I've two teeth, which seems -as you can see by the color- to be fossils or sub-fossils. I found them in a beach of a volcanic lake (Central Europe), where there aren't sedimentary formations, so I suppose they are not older than the lake itself (the collapse of the caldera and the formation of the lake are dated between 400,000 and 150,000 years ago). Do you think they could be recent fossil or subfossil? Which kind of animal? They are 3 and 2 cm long.

Years of collecting the strand line in Asbury Park, NJ, have revealed a lot of the rarer elements of the modern shallow marine fauna, as well as of the Cretaceous marine biota whose fossils wash up there. But this month I was astounded to come across this shell, which I believe to be a craniid brachiopod's dorsal valve. Based on its condition I can't be sure whether it's modern, subfossil, or even Cretaceous. It's matrix-free and shows signs of having been encrusted by cheilostome bryozoa. Can someone confirm or refute this ID? Can someone with expertise in the Cretaceous coastal plain comment on the likelihood of this specimen's possible Cretaceous origin? Thanks!
