Found this mortality plate in the thin compact layer between neogene conglomerates and marl, above the flysch, at Milia beach in Alonissos island, Greece. According to a paper regarding the neogene in Alonissos [ http://sciencepress.mnhn.fr/sites/default/files/articles/pdf/g2019v41a3.pdf ] findings from marl deposits in an abandoned lignite quarry near Votsi village include Planorbis freshwater gastropods. Have I also found planorbis gastropods? Am I looking at Miocene or Pliocene fossils? As always any suggestions are much appreciated!
From the album: The Mollusca of the BanjaardA cute specimen of a terrestrial ram's horn snail. The age of these is unsure, as they are not marine animals, and therefore not from the Eemian sea. It is very likely of the same age as the Corbicula cf fluminalis that I also found here, which are also inland species (freshwater). Modern specimens can be recognized by their flashy white shell. Status: still locally alive Fossil occurrence: uncommon

Hello, I hope today finds you digging. I am a very curious cat, in our garden area, there is a wide variety of rock types. Some are beautiful river rock, we also have an abundance of seashells. Being the amature/hobbiest that I am, I am always trying to learn and look for reasons to be digging in particular areas. The area that I am in now is clay, loads and levels and layers of clay, uugghhhh. Now with that I believe I have found a couple of fossils, oncolites and a type of sponge. The pics are on here. I am wondering, in this crazy clay what do I need to look for? I find flint, quartz crysta
