Recommended Posts

Hi, i come back to you again because i tried to figure out what might be items i found in the Senonian of Touraine in France without success.

Most of them, i believe are sponges.

 

1) about 3,5 cm round

4) This last one might just be a funny nodule. It is about 6 cm of length and almost 3 of width :IMG_0244.thumb.JPG.b5643557cdbfae886a8afcd784b13d80.JPGIMG_0247.thumb.JPG.e9eb4e03e51336e8b31ba393b2048b9b.JPGIMG_0249.thumb.JPG.3d3c724401a46e28b6e0d9c7d13ee1b7.JPGIMG_0231.thumb.JPG.a90d00a3f97d481830912327cc486795.JPG

This looks like a Porosphaera platelliformis.

It could be.
All of the presented specimens could be sponges.

Thanks Abyssunder. I had doubts on some, but not on the first one, although a precise identification is not possible because it is too worn. I had doubts on number 2) and 3), but mostly on 4) which seem to be parts of sponges (if they are sponges).:)
