Very Large Gastropod

Recommended Posts

minnbuckeye

This gastropod was collected about a month ago in Coralville Iowa from the Cedar Valley Formation of the Devonian. I have pieced it and puttied it back together. My attempts at IDing have failed. I don't think it is  a maclurite. Any experts on the Devonian life of Iowa out there??

It appears to be Pleuronotus sp.

i found a similar example in Coralville last year.
