Miscellaneous fossils from the Kalkberg

Recommended Posts

Hello all,

I have a few fossils that do not fit into the ID categories of topics I have already created so I will post them here.

This first one I have no idea what it is, it has an asymmetrical shape with a beak-like portion to the shell that curves to one side. It is somewhat similar to a modern slipper limpet. 

I don't know if this is a gastropod, pelycopod, or something else. 

I am not expecting to get a genus or species for this thing since all of the shell is missing but being able to identify it to some extent would be great.

The gastropods look like platycerids to me.

I agree. There are several species found in this formation.

You were correct with this one. This is a Dalmanites pleuroptyx pygidium.

This one might be Diaphorostoma depressum. Here’s one from the New Scotland Formation I found a while back. 4627F755-119E-4026-B381-B9B87AB6400E.thumb.jpeg.b5d364e078d76dd5d4a770198d807d0c.jpeg

Is it possible this might be a large bryozoan? I’ve found some similarly shaped ones.
