Egidio 1

by Fabio Cipri
(Riyadh, Saudi Arabia)

This fossil has been found at 150 km Northern of Riyadh, Saudi Arabia.

Unfortunately the main body is really damaged whereas 4 plaques of the shell (?) are in really good conditions.

All around is plenty of fossils of corals, and ammonites.

But this shellfish (?) is really a mysterious for us.

Any suggestion for the identification?

Saudi Arabia Fossil
by: Douglas

Fossil fragments are hard to be sure about. You have to use your imagination to picture what it could have been as a whole.

Because you said there are ammonite fossils in the area that would be my guess. The layered look of the segments could be a part of an ammonite.
