Possible squid from Montour Fossil Pit

Recommended Posts

I found this yesterday in my searches at the Montour fossil pit in Danville pa. I think it is a squid but wouldn’t mind help identifying it. The third picture is the opposite side of the rock. Thanks everyone!

It is likely a weathered fragment of an orthocone nautiloid, as identified by Fossildude19 in your trip thread:

We’re sometimes blistering fast with IDs. :D Getting this down to genus and species level may be a challenge due to the condition of this one.
