Hi, I don't have any information on this specimen since I believe the rock that I found it in is foreign to the area I discovered it. Although I think the rock is from somewhere around the Western Pennsylvania/Eastern Ohio area. It is approximately 2.6 cm by 2 cm. Just hoping someone has some idea what it is. Thanks again.

Looks like a cast of a bivalve shell.

I'd have to disagree with @Ludwigia, I think this looks more like a productid brachiopod valve, it's partially exposed giving it the asymmetrical appearance of a bivalve.

Maybe something like Echinaria sp.? Although I am not great at identifying productids.

 

@Tidgy's Dad may be able to tell

I'm with @Misha, it looks like a productid brachiopod to me.  I'm thinking something like Cancrinella with those coarse rugae and what looks like a bit of an ear exposed at the edge near the hingeline.  But I'm assuming it is Pennsylvanian and that could be wrong of course.

One more for productid brachiopod. My first thought was something like Echinoconchus.

Echinaria and Echinoconchus may be at least partial synonyms.

 

See synonymy in:

Another vote for Echinaria. Scale bar 1 cm.

Yes, definitely a productid, though I wouldn't like to guess which one without a location. 

Quite a few possible candidates.
