Fossil hunting in Long Creek Hood County Texas, found these (all the same shape) fossils.  Are they a pelecypod, oyster, gryphaea?  Any suggestions appreciated!  It almost looks like a weathered bi-valve.  See the last pic I posted.

They look like weathered nautiloids to me

I"m thinking Rudists on these.

The last photo definitely shows an Exogyra type bivalve from the family Gryphaeidae, a group of oysters.

The last pic is not one of the finds I made.  It was off the internet.

Me too.  The thin remnants of shell suggest rudist versus gastropod. Probably in the family Requienidae.
