Squid and gastopods

Recommended Posts

MrBones

We recently went to Khassab, Oman

We went on a tour into the mountains to see some fossils. I would like to know what some of them are. They look like some types of squid with some bivalves.IMG-20190210-WA0003.jpg.aa4fda67cfc6847375eee88a74a5bd4e.jpgIMG-20190210-WA0008.thumb.jpg.5489ae162b15b1e552b3168affdb79bb.jpgIMG-20190210-WA0002.thumb.jpg.b80728d3957dc6d3e63d7be634a7541c.jpg

The doughnut shapes are a bit confusing, but the sectioned examples to show gastropod spirals clearly enough.

They look like Nerinea or something similar.

I agree with Nerineidae.

Nice nerineidae, indeed! 

Try googling for images of "nerinea".

@Rockwood, thanks for pointing it out! You are right, I see them now, too!

At the first sight, I have seen they typical shape of the void(?) of nerineas. I have marked one filled with sparry calcite, and another one filled with sediment.

Different fillings, oblique sections and partial preservation can produce strange shapes in these gastros.
