Genus of this shell?

Recommended Posts

I found this one next to a bunch of turritellas. It looks like a scallops design.
In Washington state. I took a picture next to a quarter but it didn't show up.

Its around 3 inches across and 3 1/2 inches vertically.

Looks like an imprint. I think an exact ID would be tough with what you got.

I agree. But it was worth a shot : )

I would say some form of pecten might be as close as you are going to get.

Luckily for me the formation only has one known Pecten species called

pecten cowlitzensis

So I think that narrows it down quite a bit. 
Assuming this isn't a new species but its in such bad shape there is no way of knowing. 
Thanks for the help
