Hi Everyone,

 

While this is not a fossil, it is a very large benthic foram that I am having trouble idenifying.

Could anyone either tell me what this is, or point me to somewhere or someone that could help?

This specimen is not whole, there is an outer ring on the other specimens like this, that is a slightly different pattern to the one seen here.

These are up to 2 or 3 mm across. I have found them in VERY high abundances and need to figure out what they are.

 

Thanks!

Looks like Ammonia sp.

But need to see all sides to determine.
