Large bone from Aust cliff


Recommended Posts

Pleuromya

Hi,

I found this bone at Aust cliff (late Triassic), I know that most bones from Aust are likely Plesiosaur or Ichthyosaur, but are often unidentifiable. Is it possible to identify this bone? It seems to have split around the back, so could probably be only half of the bone, and it looks to be the end of a bone. I've ordered a book on Rhaetian fossils, so hopefully that will make things easier.  It measures about 8 cm across. Unfortunately I do not have anything with me to prepare it. 

Many thanks. :)

and some interesting bits in the encrusting matrix. It will take a local to figure this one out I suspect.
