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

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.
