While working on a specimen, this little gastropod fell out. Its measures about 7mm wide. Is it a Worthenia or something else? Being so small, I'm not sure it looks like the classic examples I find on fossil plates. Ruler is in mm. Found in the Glenshaw Formation. Pennsylvanian in age.
D.N.FossilmanLithuania posted a topic in Fossil IDDear Guys, In a time of two years I collected these gastropod fossils in dolomite erratics of Varena town, South Lithuania. There are many Naticopsis, Euomphalus like snails and also Worthenia, Omphalotrochus and Anomphalus are identified. The temporal range of the majority of these gastropod genera begins in Devonian and ends in Triassic or even early Jurassic. I would think these dolomites are Carboniferous or Permian in age but I would like to be sure which epoch they belong to and what other fossils I can expect to find in the future. Any help will be appreciated! Best Regards Domas At first, I will show Naticopsis like snails.
gwestbrook posted a topic in Fossil Hunting TripsI had forgotten I had found Worthenia fossils of this size at the Jacksboro Pennsylvanian period Finis Shale site. Found these probably on my first or second collecting trip to that site 5 or 6 years ago. I have boxes of stuff I haven't looked in for years. Finding stuff that's surprising me.
