Central Texas Cretaceous Id Help

Recommended Posts

JamieLynn

Hi all! I had an excellent hunting trip up in Round Rock Texas with a friend yesterday. Lots of exogeria, small heart urchins, oyster shells and such. I did find one thing that I can't identify. It reminds me of a squished barnacle. The striations are on both sides. Any ideas?

It's looks worn on the edges....could it be a piece of brachiopod?

My go-to ID for odd shelly bits from there is Rudist.

Can you post some larger pictures? These are pretty small for ID.

okay! Larger photos uploaded. Perhaps more detail will help. And yes, Auspex, Rudist is a good go to for odd bits! :)

stumbled across some pictures that look similar to this piece and are identified as Parasmilia Coral - austiensis, possibly.....can anyone confirm this id?

Parasmilia is a possibility. There were a number of different species. It is very water worn.
