My granny found this during one of our family vacations to the beach (either Florida or South Carolina) when I was a kid during the '90s. No one seems to be able to identify this....post-15570-0-15860300-1402683677_thumb.jpgpost-15570-0-76334500-1402683693_thumb.jpgpost-15570-0-78914800-1402683709_thumb.jpg

Looks like the internal mold of a pretty large bivalve. Someone here should be able to recognize the genus.

I agree, it's an internal mold. Do you know how old it is/what period it's from or the formation it's from? That could help with an id.

It is probably Cucullaea from the Cretaceous. It is a common find around Myrtle Beach.

I agree, Cucullaea

I agree that it is a mold. I think they are pretty neat. I have a couple from the Myrtle Beach area.
