Recommended Posts

This fossil was found at Luoping, Guizhou.  Is it a giant clam fossil?

It’s 15cm in diameter, from the Luoping biota from the Anisian Stage of the Middle Triassic, Yunnan Province and southwest China.  Thanks

15cm's does make for a large clam, but they do get to be 2, 3 and 4 feet!

Thanks for the info!

Can not help further, but with this info perhaps someone else can.

Is there something published about this formation (I think so)?
