Hey guys I found this fossil laying on the ground in central florida in a area with other rocks. I don't know much about it but I do have a picture and it looks to me like there are some bone fragments and a shell in it. Please give me your input guys it's greatly appreciated. Thank you.

Brachiopods and other broken bits.

I can't find anything definitively Paleozoic in that piece....doesn't mean it's not, and doesn't mean it didn't come from someplace else in either case; just means there isn't much here to go on.

If it's from Florida, then that shell could be a scallop.

Context is critical.

Thanks for the responses! I'm still looking things up online, and I can't seem to find anything that looks just like it. I don't know much about fossils, etc...so I really appreciate it.

No Paleozoic brachiopods in Florida, probably middle Cenozoic (Eocene-Miocene -Oligocene)pelecypod fragments.
