One rock crumbled as I held it and this little fossil clam fell into my hand as if by magic!

Jammer, man; ek weet nie. Miskien 'n "encrusting bryozoan" ?
These rocks are unfamiliar to me. Various corals predominate, so maybe it is some kind of coral. If I find out I'll alert you.

 

Are you in Cape Town proper? Of what era are the rocks there? Lots of marine fossils?

@markjw hahaha! Lekker Afrikaans:dinothumb: I'm in the boland, about an hour out of Cape Town. The Cape Fold mountains in my area hold, late to early devonian deposits. The matrix and specimens of your finds look very similar to some areas here. Let me know if you figure that one out.
