Fossil Claw

Just curious.

 

I keep seeing these hand mined boney crab fossils from the green river formation from Chinese sellers on an auction site. I have also seen them listed as from Madagascar.

 

They don't look like green river fossils. 

 

Just wondering if they are real and where they actually come from.

Seems to be Macrophtalmus sp. from the pliocene layers of the Majunga province in Madagascar. Definitily not GRF .

Yes, I just received one of those. I agree with @gigantoraptorMacrophtalmus sp. from Majunga. Fortunately, mine came labeled and was almost in the exact same condition.
