Trace Fossil? Penarth, Wales UK. Triassic / Jurassic?

Recommended Posts

I found this on the foreshore at Penarth beach (rocky) close to cliffs. I assumed it could be a trace fossil of some kind? Somebody on Reddit suggested perhaps Fusulinids, and they certainly resemble those from what I’ve seen, but it doesn’t look to tie in with the age of the rocks at the site.

On first glance they appear to be Lockeia, commonly interpreted as bivalve resting traces. You would be looking at the base of the bed.

Interesting.. I’ve had a look and I think you’re right, they look almost identical! so in the photo I’m basically holding it upside down?
