Gastropods from Algeria


Recommended Posts

Hello! I would like to share with you these photos of a fossil rock, laying in the bed of the  river M'zi, in Laghouat city, Algeria, North-west Africa. Gastropods probably nerinea , known in this area from upper Cenomanian. Absolutly no idea about genus. Thank you.

Nerinea could be correct, but the preservation is far from being good enough to be able to determine a species.

I believe it is Cimolithium sp.

We have Cimolithium tenouklense (COQUAND, 1862) in portuguese Cenomanian.
