Clam Fossil Identification

Recommended Posts

Found this at Skiatook lake in Oklahoma for a day trip. I’ve had the darnedest time figuring out what time period it could be from or what type of clam. I think it looks a lot like a modern day giant ocean clam, and comparing it to all the clam and shell type fossils I can find in encyclopedias and online none look quite like this. Any insight would be greatly appreciated.

Composita brachiopod if the rocks are Pennsylvanian.

My goal is to leave no stone or fossil unturned.   

See my Arizona Paleontology Guide    link  The best single resource for Arizona paleontology anywhere.

I just saw a surface rock map of Oklahoma and its time periods and where I found it would defiantly be that time period. Thanks a ton!!
