What kind of imprint is this?

Found this earlier while shark tooth hunting. Just trying to find out what it is.

Oyster shell. Hopefully someone will pop in to narrow down the genus.

The oysters from Sherman Texas found in the uppermost Eagle Ford shale are Cameleolopha bellaplicata. Some have coral and/or bryozoan growing on them. See the publication:

"The Late Cretaceous oyster Cameleolopha bellaplicata (Shumard 1860), guide fossil to middle Turonian strata in New Mexico" found at link

You might be surprised how many fossils you find if you quit looking for teeth.  ;)

You will probably find more where you found that one. Oysters are seldom preserved as single specimens.

Thank you all. I’ve definitely been looking more into fossils rather than teeth but the teeth are a lot harder to miss where I go. These are some fossils I found yesterday!!!

I could do it. It's why I look for other fossils. :wacko:

Some of the other people I go with can’t find em like I can either. I can sit down and find 5 within a few minutes. I think I’ve made 5 trips total and have over a hundred.
