Clam fossil?

Recommended Posts

My son found this in Oneonta NY and was wondering if anyone knows what kind of mussel this could be?

Very nice find. :)

Not certain, but Palaeoneilo, perhaps? 

Let's see what the locals think.

Welcome to the forum from Syracuse New York! I am not familiar with the Oneonta area. Do you know what formation or time period the fossil was found? That would help with ID.

Welcome to the Forum. :)

 

@Darktooth  I think the area is Devonian. 

 

I think Modiomorpha concentrica may be a better match.  :unsure: 

Although, there are several others that may be close as well.
